    Deadline: March 29, 2024

    https://iamcr.org/christchurch2024

    The IAMCR conference theme „Weaving People Together: Communicative projects of decolonising, engaging, and listening“, taking place in Christchurch, New Zealand, is based on a Māori proverb (whakataukī) „Whiria te tāngata“, weaving people together in English, which is about the strength that comes through common purpose. IAMCR invites reflections upon (but not limited to) contemporary forms of communication, commonality, challenges to colonial structures and indigenous communication. 

    ECREA will host one panel at IAMCR 2024 and invites the submission of panel proposals that are focused on timely and innovative topics and are diverse in terms of methodologies, theoretical standpoints and/or nationalities of the presenters. We especially encourage panel proposals which include a European perspective and a comparative research focus. This call for panel proposals is open to ECREA members of all ECREA sections and to all topics.

    Please note the following information:

    Panel submissions. Please submit the following details: (a) panel theme or title, (b) description of the panel, (c) names, titles of talks, affiliations and emails of each participant

    In terms of diversity, we expect a strong panel proposal to (a) include contributions of at least two different countries, (b) feature gender balance, and, ideally, (c) include not more than one contribution from a single faculty, department or school. Panel proposals need to be original and may not have been submitted to IAMCR before or at the same time. 

    Panels must be presented on-site at the venue of the conference.

    Accepted panel presentations do not count towards the max. allowed individual paper presentations at the IAMCR conference.

    Registering panelists. All panelists must be ECREA members by the time the conference takes place and agree in advance of submission to participate as panel presenters and to register for the IAMCR conference. IAMCR only provides a registration waiver for the panel convener, not for the other panelists.

    How to submit?

    • Email to: info@ecrea.eu

    • Submission deadline is 29 March 2024, 23:59 CET

    • In case of questions please contact: Irena Reifová (irena.reifova@fsv.cuni.cz)

    ECREA is opening a call for proposals for the hosting and organisation of the 2026 edition of the European Communication Conferences.

    ECREA conferences have been taken place in different parts of Europe from Amsterdam (2005) to Ljubljana (forthcoming in 2024) proposing opportunities to show the know-how and the activities of the organising institution(s) and to foster the energy and creativity of the organisers around a large international project.

    The Executive Board of ECREA has developed a framework document – Terms of Reference to define the format and give guidelines for the organisation of such a conference.

    Interested members are asked to submit proposals for hosting the 2026 European Communication Conference. The institution hosting the Conference has to be active in the field of communication research and/or education and have sufficient experience and sufficient capacity (staff and support) to prepare and run the event.

    The proposal for hosting the 2026 European Communication Conference must take the form of a document where candidate host institutions will: 1) Describe their general vision of the event (including the location, timing, duration and their organisational capacity). 2) Explicitly engage themselves to meet ECREA's requirements described in the Terms of Reference for Organising ECREA’s 11th European Communication Conference 2026 and provide the basic information regarding the way their proposal will meet ECREA's requirements. 3) Propose a draft financial plan. 4) Sketch out the strengths and weaknesses associated with the proposal.

    Please note that more than one institution can join forces and present a conjoint proposal, as long as they are in the same geographical area.

    Deadline and submission

    Proposals must be submitted by Thursday, 29. February, 2024 (deadline extended). The proposals must be sent by e-mail (attachment in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf format) to info@ecrea.eu .

    The ECREA Executive Board will then select one institution to act as local host, and possibly one runner-up to step in, in case the selected host encounters unforeseen difficulties.

    Timeline

    ECC conferences are normally held in October-November (unless the local host argues otherwise). The selection of the host for the conference will be decided upon at least two years prior to the event.

    The timetable will be as follows:

    11 October, 2023: the call for applications is open. Each candidate-host turns in a summary project describing how they see the event, where, how, etc.

    29 February, 2024: the call is closed. The Board considers applications and selects one which complies with all criteria, including the strategic priorities of the Board. Contacts are made with candidates for further information where necessary.

     March 2024: The Board announces the selected host institution to all institutional members that have applied. The selected institution is asked to develop a full organisational plan in close cooperation with ECREA’s Board. The full plan is to be ready by mid June 2024. If appropriate, the Board also selects a runner-up institution to host the conference should the selected institution be unable to deliver.

    June, 2024: The Board examines the full proposal and decides on its approval. If necessary, the organisers are given one more month to fine-tune the proposal (with assistance of the Executive Board).

    24 September –27 September, 2024: the ECC2026 conference host is announced at in Ljubljana.

    October – November, 2026: ECC2026 takes place.

    We are accepting inquires from the academic institutions interested in organizing the conference. For any inquiry, please contact ECREA admin info@ecrea.eu .

    We are looking forward to receiving your proposals!
