The 25th AMIC Conference on 15-17 September 2016 will continue to be intellectually stimulating, plus more.
As in previous conferences, plenary and parallel sessions will feature debates on current and emerging communication and media issues. There will also be discussions on best practices in communication strategies and tools.
But next year’s sessions are also envisioned to present innovative and thought-provoking topics – “those which disturb. “ With the theme, Rethinking Communication and Media in a Resurgent Asia, the conference will encourage paper presenters to question traditional standards and mindsets and come up with pioneering, innovative, creative, and disturbing topics including the so-called “new normal.”
For those who cannot be accommodated in the parallel sessions, poster presentations will be introduced.
AMIC 2016 also means business. The conference will provide a platform for presenting new ideas, products, and services. If you have a new publication, you can launch your latest publication during the event. Technology companies may want to present their latest gadgets and apps, and schools may introduce their new academic programs.
There will be distinct business matching hours during the three-day conference where “sellers meet buyers.”
Many academic institutions are on the lookout for new partners or networks. Thus, AMIC 2016 will facilitate initiation or finalization of memorandum of agreements between new partners. Before the conference begins, partnership areas among AMIC member-institutions will be publicized to jumpstart dialogue.
If you feel weary because of the stimulating discussions, join the wellness sessions which will be made available during breaks. These may include massage sessions or even tai chi exercises to reduce stress.
