Information Without Borders (IWB)

The Information Without Borders (IWB) Conference is a student-led initiative by  the School of Information Management at Dalhousie University. This one-day event provides a forum for interdisciplinary discussion on a central topic with varying perspectives. IWB was designed to facilitate networking and communication among students, faculty, and professionals; provide a forum for information pertaining to this year’s conference topic; promote interaction among schools in the Faculty of Management and other Dalhousie departments; allow students to develop skills; and encourage students to present their current research.

The topic for IWB 2016 will be managing health information. This year’s conference is also special because it is the 10th year of this annual conference.
