Hosted by Indiana University

iConference 2025 begins in:

Much of the world is experiencing an extraordinary era of ubiquitous technology, perhaps the most pervasive of which are the algorithms that have become deeply integrated into our work and social lives becoming unseen architects, shaping everything from social interactions to economic transactions. These algorithms influence increasingly critical decisions and are shaping our world in unprecedented ways. From social media feeds to financial markets, healthcare to criminal justice, algorithmic processes are increasingly determining outcomes that impact our personal and professional lives.

With the theme "Living in an AI-gorithmic World,” iConference 2025 seeks to explore the potentially profound implications of living in a world increasingly influenced by algorithmic processes, such as generative artificial intelligence, machine learning, large language models (LLM), data analytics, and related technologies. We invite researchers, practitioners, and thinkers to submit their papers, panels, and workshops proposals on this pivotal theme. Because so much of modern life is impacted by these technologies, we encourage scholars, practitioners, and thought leaders from across the intellectual landscape to join us in exploring the profound implications of living in an AI-gorithmic world. We solicit research and critical commentary that examines the multifaceted dimensions of algorithms and their role in contemporary life, to foster a deeper understanding of their benefits, challenges, and ethical implications.

We welcome empirical and theoretical submissions that investigate the ways in which cultural, political,
organizational, economic and other social dynamics have been and are/will be altered by algorithmic processes. We are interested in papers that critically analyze the economic transformations brought about by AI, LLMs machine learning, and predictive analytics. Additionally, of interest is work that investigates the psychological and sociological dimensions of living under algorithmic influences, offering insights into how we can retain agency in an increasingly automated environment. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches that bridge the gap between technology, society, and human values — for example, address questions such as how can we design algorithmic processes that enhance human well-being and promote societal good? Papers that explore collaborations between technologists, ethicists, policymakers, and community stakeholders to create more inclusive and human-centric algorithmic systems are also welcomed.

Submit your full and short papers and panel, workshop and symposia proposals to contribute to this vital discourse and celebrate the 20th anniversary of iConference. Together, we can begin and shape the discourse about the complexities of living in an algorithmic world, ensuring that these powerful tools serve to enhance, rather than diminish, the human experience.
