The iConference is rising to the challenge of bringing networking and social interaction to its virtual venue. We seek proposals for a dedicated Networking track that aims at connecting participants from across the globe and create an environment for engagement and informal get-together.

The Networking convenors have all the range and options available to them to use in a virtual environment. We welcome creative ideas, approaches and topics to bring together peers in a moderated networking session. We can provide a space for learning, reflection, and relationship-building through virtual installations or exhibitions.

Please note that iConference 2023 will have a virtual and a physical component, events for the Networking track will be held at the virtual part of the conference only. Please submit your proposal for the virtual program only.

There will be plenty of networking opportunities on-site in Barcelona, Spain. 

Participation must be open to all conference attendees, with no additional fees.

All accepted events will be held during iConference 2023 in our virtual conference venue SCOOCS; presentation instruction will be provided with acceptance notifications.
