About This Seminar
At the Syracuse University iSchool, much of our faculty’s study and teaching relates to the life cycle of information. This includes the organizational or enterprise needs of information management, from collection, preservation, and security to evaluation, analysis, and sharing through research and visualization.
At the individual level, this cycle includes personal information, its management and protection. At any level, these activities can have broad societal impacts.
This seminar will offer students, practitioners, alumni, and researchers the opportunity to interact and discuss related research and industry practices.
