AMIC Issues Call for Papers for 29th Annual Conference
THE Asian Media Information and Communication Centre, Inc. (AMIC) is now accepting abstracts for parallel sessions in the 29th AMIC Annual Conference which will be held on 28-30 September in Bandung, Indonesia.
The theme of the conference is Talk ASAP: Africa-Asia Pacific Dialogue on Communication Issues. The three-day hybrid event is expected to bring together scholars from Africa and Asia Pacific to tackle pressing issues affecting the communication and media practice in these continents.
AMIC Secretary-General Ramon R. Tuazon said that initially, parallel sessions themes will focus on communication theories and research paradigms; digital research, regulation, and inter-platform relations; media communication; mobile technology in science, health, and agricultural communication; media and information literacy; integrated marketing communication (including public relations and advertising); new technologies and journalism practices; digital technology and human relations; and digitally-enabled pathways to education.
“We invite interested communication and media scholars and practitioners from Africa and Asia Pacific to prepare and submit their abstracts by 28 June,” he said. “The conference will be an interesting convergence of ideas, best practices, and recent researches on communication and media that will be of great significance to participants from all over the world.”
The abstracts must be written in English and should not exceed 350 words. Deadline for submission of abstracts is on 28 June 2023.
“The abstracts must strictly be submitted to AMIC via the Abstract Submission Form. Abstracts and papers sent to the personal e-mail addresses of conference organizers and AMIC officers will not be entertained,” Tuazon added.
An expert panel of reviewers will evaluate the abstracts and only those that have passed stringent criteria will be allowed to present in the parallel sessions during the international conference. “Interested communication professionals, educators, researchers, and media practitioners may visit this link on our website, https://amic.asia/call-for-papers-29th-amic-annual-conference/ to download the guidelines on the submission of abstracts,” Tuazon said.
