ISCN Virtual Events for 2020

ISCN Virtual Events

The disruptive effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have changed the way we communicate, share ideas and move our institution’s mission forward. In line with this, ISCN leadership is exploring online platforms and developing a robust calendar of virtual events that will soon be shared with ISCN members. This series of virtual events is aimed at energizing, engaging and informing ISCN members.

Confirmed Virtual Events so far – via zoom/YouTube channel from 15:00-17:00 CEST, Swiss time:

  • 14th of May 2020 ISCN Awards Ceremony 2020
  • 28th of May 2020 ISCN Student-led sessions (exact title tbc)
  • 24th of June 2020 Presentation of the results of the ISCN Working Group on the Times Higher Education Impact Ranking. (Exact date and time tbc)

Call for Virtual Event Proposals

ISCN would also like to invite its members in identifying ideas for virtual events (and possibly organise them) and now launches  a Call for proposals for virtual events.

If you are interested in hosting a virtual event or would like to share an idea or theme, please send us an email to [email protected] with the following subject headline: ISCN Virtual Event Proposal. The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2020.

Virtual events proposals led by more than one ISCN Member are highly desirable and will be given preference. They will be programmed from September 2020 onwards (about one event per month). Please note that ISCN members who propose virtual events might be expected to dedicate the necessary resources to bring the event to fruition (identifying and securing keynote speakers, structuring and designing the event, logistics, etc.). The ISCN Secretariat will support this process by providing visibility and publicity, communication to the ISCN community and beyond and by providing technical support for the virtual events if needed.

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals and ideas. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to get in touch with us.

With kind regards,

The ISCN Secretariat
