Annonce

Argument

The Mediated Communication, Public Opinion & Society Section of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) invites submissions for the IAMCR 2015 conference to be held from July 12-16, 2015 in Montreal (Canada). 

First and foremost we invite papers and panels submissions that relate to the conference theme and to the aims of the section in general.

We secondly wish also to continue our well-established tradition to promote the further theoretical discussions on the contribution of prominent thinkers on the field of communication research. In the last years we organized panels that discussed the contribution of the works of Goffman, Habermas, Schutz, Bourdieu, Foucault, McLuhan, Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes, and Antonio Gramsci among others. Following that tradition we would like to organize for the Hyderabad conference at least one session centred on the contribution of the works of Harold Innis intellectual work to the theory and research in the field of communication and media studies.  

In addition, we would like to continue our long standing interest in the discussion, development and critical assessment of the methodologies we use and we need for communication research and especially for international and cross cultural research projects, both quantitative and qualitative.

Guidelines for Abstracts

Abstracts should be sent to the MCPOS Section Heads only through the Conference website, and should be 500 words long in English. Each abstract must include title, name(s), affiliation, institutional address and email address of author(s) and a short (up to 100 words) bio-data. 

It is also possible to propose a full panel of no more than four participants, or if the panellist are from the same country to have a chair or discussant from a different country.  In this case we expect the four abstracts of the participants and their short bio-data and in addition a framing text about the idea and the goal of the full panel.  It would also be recommended to name a panel chair and a discussant.

IAMCR accepts presentations in English, French and Spanish. However, it is requested that abstracts will be submitted in English, to facilitate the international peer review process. In addition, this section will arrange for presentations in English only.. 

Non members of IAMCR and/or of the section are welcome to submit and present if accepted, following the same procedure as described above and if accepted also the procedure as described below. 

All proposals must be submitted through the online Open Conference System from 1 December 2014 – 9  February 2015. Early submission is strongly encouraged. 

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 9 February 2015.

Please note that this deadline will not be extended. The OCS system will close at midnight GMT on 9 February 2014.

Questions for further information should be addressed to the section heads.

It is expected that for the most part, only one (1) abstract will be submitted per person for consideration by the Conference. However, under no circumstances should there be more than two (2) abstracts bearing the name of the same applicant either individually or as part of any group of authors. Please note also that the same abstract or another version with minor variations in title or content must not be submitted to other Sections or Working Groups of the Association for consideration, after an initial submission. Such submissions will be deemed to be in breach of the conference guidelines and will be automatically rejected by the Open Conference System, by the relevant Head or by the Conference Programme Reviewer. Such applicants risk being removed entirely from the conference program.

Upon submission of an abstract, you will be asked to confirm that your submission is original and that it has not been previously published in the form presented. You will also be given an opportunity to declare if your submission is currently before another conference for consideration.

For further information, please consult the conference website or contact the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) by email: iamcr2015[at]uqam.ca.

Presenters are expected to confirm their participation upon receipt of acceptance letter, to register to the conference and to upload their full paper to the IAMCR-OCS by 19 June 2015,  in order to be included in the final conference program.

According to IAMCR rules abstract and panels will be peer reviewed.
