We invite young scholars from all ICA divisions and interest groups to submit extended abstracts on both completed and ongoing projects. We welcome submissions on all aspects of the visual communication process and research methods, with a broad range of topics.
Extended abstracts should briefly summarize the project, including theory, methods, results (where applicable), and its relevance to visual communication studies. Please specifically address challenges in with your research projects where senior scholars’ feedback would be the most useful. Extended abstracts should be limited to a maximum of 1,000 words (double-spaced; illustrations, tables and references do not count against this total of words). Please remove all identifying information from the document and include a separate title page indicating the name(s) of the author(s), the affiliation(s) of the author(s), the title of the project, and the status of the project (e.g. the completed project, work in progress).
Please send your submissions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as a Word or PDF document no later than 28 February 2018. Decisions will be made by 14 March 2018. The pre-conference will be open to a maximum of 20 young scholars. Participants will be selected based on the quality of their extended abstracts. In the review process, we will also consider that a reasonable range of topics will be covered by the presentations and that participants can be grouped in sessions focused on similar concerns.
There will be a US $50 fee for preconference participants to cover room and equipment rental, and catering costs. Depending on the availability of additional funding for the pre-conference, we may also be able to offer a discounted fee at the time of registration.
Please also visit the accompanying website www.visualcommunicationstudies.net for any updates on the preconference.
Feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
