Submission deadline: October 8, 2021

The Communication and Technology Interest Group invites submissions of competitive papers, extended abstracts, and panel proposals for the 2022 CSCA Convention. The purpose of the Communication and Technology Interest Group is to promote dialogues and scholarships on the role of technology in communication. In conjunction with the convention theme, we are seeking innovative and insightful research that explores how we communicate “through” and “with” technology and the ways that technological boundaries can shape how we communicate as well as how technology can inspire communicative breakthroughs as it pertains to all areas in our field.

We welcome submissions that deal with a variety of technology platforms/types (e.g., AI, robots, VR, AR, mobile phone, social media). We also welcome a diverse range of topics/contexts concerning technology including but not limited to the following: CMC (Computer-Mediated Communication), HMC (Human-Machine Communication), and technology in diverse communication contexts (e.g., health, interpersonal, organizational, education).
