AP iNext Generation Committee

The iSchools Asia-Pacific Next Generation Committee was launched in 2022 by the Asia-Pacific regional iSchools in conjunction with the iSchools Board. The purpose of this AP-iSchools sub-organization is to maximize the visibility and communication among the next generation researchers, to enhance academic initiatives and mutual support, and to empower the AP library and information science community with vitality and to cultivate future leaders in the information field. The Committee will facilitate an international network for next generation researchers through various events and activities, including the AP-iConference, workshops, panels, international research projects and joint grant proposals.

Initial impetus for the Committee came from Prof. Atsuyuki Morishima, Asia-Pacific Regional Chair for the iSchools Organization. The Committee is composed of next generation researchers in the field of information from Asia-Pacific (AP) iSchools members, the International Conference on Asia-Pacific Digital Libraries (ICADL) and the Asia-Pacific Library and Information Education and Practice Conference (A-LIEP) communities.

The Asia-Pacific iSchools Next Generation Committee now includes 18 members from 13 institutions for the first term of two years. Dr. Di Wang from Wuhan University and Dr. Misita Anwar from Monash University are current Chair and Chair Elect.
