Rutgers iSchool to Hold Research Invitational for Master’s Students


Rutgers University iSchool invites students with in-progress and completed master’s degrees to the Third Rutgers iSchool Research Invitational. The conference focus is to showcase master’s student research interests (completed, in-progress and prospective work in information science or related domain), and to network with our iSchool community. Attendees will present a research poster. They will participate in networking events such as a catered dinner, research presentations by current PhD students, and discussions with iSchool faculty. The participants will also have a unique opportunity to learn about Rutgers PhD program and the excellent benefits it offers to those interested in pursuing research in iSchools. The event takes place November 4-5, 2016

A complete proposal for participation requires: Poster abstracts of up to 500 words outlining your research interests and any results you have gleaned to-date, a CV, and a cover letter of introduction briefly describing you, your background and career plans. Applications will be considered by a juried panel of Rutgers faculty based upon thorough completion of the requested materials, depth of coverage, and fit in the iSchool scholarly fields. The application deadline is October 9, and decisions will be announced October 12.

Selected participants will be reimbursed for up to $300 for travel to Rutgers University, depending on distance. Their hotel for up to two nights, local transportations, and meals will also be covered.
