Details about ICA and the conference:

International Communication Association (ICA)
2013 Annual Conference in London, UK
17-21 June 2013

ICA is an academic association for scholars interested in the study, teaching, and application of all aspects of human and mediated communication. ICA began more than 50 years ago as a small association of U.S. researchers and is now a truly international association with more than 3,500 members in 65 countries.

The ICA 2013 Conference theme, Challenging Communication Research, provides communication researchers an opportunity to reflect on the field’s multifaceted and increasingly open character in an era of shifting social relations, formations, and technologies. We must consider the challenges these developments pose for us as researchers, teachers, citizens, creative professionals, and cultural participants.

About the Communication and Technology division:

The Communication and Technology (CAT) Division is primarily concerned with the role played by information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the process of communication. It is committed to enhancing theory and methodology pertaining to adoption, usage, effects, and policy of ICTs. Areas of research include new media, human-computer interaction, computer-mediated communication, mobile communication, and other technologically mediated social interaction and networking in all contexts (interpersonal, group, organizational, industrial, societal/cultural) and at all levels of analyses. CAT invites papers and panel session proposals that make an innovative and original contribution to our understanding of ICTs, with the primary focus on communication aspects of particular technological characteristics.
