The fifth annual iConference will examine the impacts of the iSchool movement; it will explore both actual and potential impacts of the iSchool movement, and ask how impact can be defined, identified, measured, and communicated. UC Berkeley I School Professor Marti Hearst will be a keynote speaker for the 2010 iConference.

Professor Marti Hearst has been on the faculty of the School of Information since 1997, with an affiliate appointment in the Computer Science division. Her primary research interests are user interfaces for search engines, information visualization, natural language processing, and empirical analysis of social media. She has just completed the first book, Search User Interfaces.

The annual iConference is sponsored by the iSchools Caucus, a coalition of leading information schools from across the US and Canada. These schools have joined together to build awareness of, support for, and involvement with the field of information among key constituencies, principally the media, business community, those who fund research, student prospects, and users of information.
