Research Showcase


Each year, the Research Showcase shares human-centered, interdisciplinary research that connects people with technology to achieve their goals. It focuses on socially relevant topics through the keynote speech and a series of short presentations and posters.

The 2019 Research Showcase will be held on Wednesday, October 30, from 12:00-4:30 p.m. in Ballrooms A and B of the Illini Union. Professor Scott Althaus, director of the Cline Center for Advanced Social Research, will give the keynote address, "Improving Societal Resilience to Terrorist Attacks Using Large-Scale Text Mining of News Coverage."

At the iSchool, the quality of research conducted as well as the range of topics covered is astounding. Our groundbreaking research contributes to our School’s first-place ranking among LIS programs in the United States and is truly world class.
