Announcing this year’s Social Media Expo
The 2014 organizers are pleased to announce that the Social Media Expo will again be a part of the iConference. Student teams from member iSchools are invited to craft an entry around the theme of "leveraging social media to foster a smarter society." A letter of interest from a sponsoring faculty member is due Nov. 1, with final submissions due Dec. 2, 23:00 GMT. Microsoft Research will provide $3,000 to help each selected team attend the iConference, with the expectation that each team's school will help cover remaining costs. The Expo is open to teams from schools that are members of the iSchools organization only. 

iConference 2014 will take place 4-7 March, 2014, in Berlin, Germany. Registration will open in October 2013.
