InSITE 2019: Informing Science + IT Education Conferences: Jerusalem

Jun 30 - Jul 4 2019, Jerusalem, Israel 

Conference Details

Updates: We will post updates here

  1. Conference Buses.  We have arranged for a bus to take you from downtown to the Jerusalem College of Technology (and back) on July 1, 2, 3, and 4. The bus to campus leaves each Day at 8:00 am from Pickup Point.  The bus cannot wait for delegates so you must be at the pickup point at 8:00 am sharp and get on the bus as soon as it arrives. Don't want to take our bus leaving at 8:00 am?  See Getting to campus from your hotel for ways to take public transportation, taxi, or walk. We no longer will be making partial reimbursement for taxis.

Pickup Point. The downtown pickup point is the corner of Ha'nevi'im and Harav Kuk Streets. This is a 5-minute walk from the Ibis Styles, a 4-minute walk from the Ibis City Center, and an 8-minute walk from the Jerusalem Tower Hotel. Here is a link to Google Maps:

2. See Networking Connection for the Itinerary for the Masada Trip.


The InSITE conference alumni often mention the conference as among the best organized and most supportive conference they have attended.

The conference begins with optional pre-conference networking opportunities that combine seeing the country, often with talks on country-specific topics of interest, with the hugely important chance to network with potential future research collaborators.  The networking enables building the trust relationships needed to sustain long-distance research collaboration.

The conference itself combines tracks of presentations of research papers, plenary sessions that provide for keynote speakers and mini-workshops on topics related to your professional development.

The conference also includes a day of professional development workshops.

Support for New Researchers

We proudly offer the opportunity for those without much experience in making research presentations (for example, doctoral students) to present their research in a supportive environment.

Fast-tracking of Best Accepted Papers to ISI journals

The Editors-in-Chief of ISI's journals look over the reviews and the revised submissions and select the best papers for publication in their journals using fast-tracking.  Highest consideration for fast-tracking for publication in one of ISI  journals will go to papers submitted to the conference by November 30.  Official reviewing starts December 15. To be considered, at least one author must be a paid delegate to the conference.

All papers and abstracts by conference delegates that are accepted are published in the conference proceedings.
