iSchools are a collective of Information Schools dedicated to advancing the information field in the 21st Century. These schools, colleges, and departments have been newly created or are evolving from programs formerly focused on specific tracks such as information technology, library science, informatics, and information science. The study of information is interdisciplinary, fed by multiple diverse fields. Librarianship and computer science have historically been the primary feeders of the field, but information studies is also fed by fields such as education, psychology, anthropology, business, journalism—indeed, the range of social sciences.

This is a growing community. I certainly see a lot of EdLab tools/projects associated with iSociety such as EdNode: connecting people; Vialogues: an asynchronous videos, dialogues tool for all disciplines; PocketKnowledge: archiving for the future. etc.

The submission is open now. for more information iConference2012
