Division & Interest Group News

Information Systems

The process had begun for determining the slate of Information Systems papers and panels for ICA 2008. We had a total of 111 papers/abstracts submitted and two panel proposals. We also had 80 people agree to be reviewers, which made it much easier to assign papers based upon expressed areas of interest. My thanks to all those who agreed to review! I know it is a busy time of year, but I also encourage you to try to "meet-or-beat" the deadline of December 10th for returning your reviews. This will give you the most time to complete detailed comments and reviews, while allowing me the time I need to determine acceptances and submit our slate to ICA Headquarters.

Speaking of ICA Headquarters, Division Chair Paul Bolls has been working with them to find a location for the Division Social…which will be scheduled immediately following our business meeting in May.

Enjoy the holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you (and your research) in Montreal.

Rob Potter, Vice Chair

Reminder that the Interpersonal Division has a cash award for the top student paper and a cash award for the top applied paper. Be sure to let me know if you want your work considered for the top applied paper.

Visual Communication

Dear members of the ICA Visual Communication Studies Division, it is my great pleasure to inform you of the election results. Thanks to all of you who participated in the vote, and to all our excellent candidates who ran for office.

Please join me in congratulating Luc Pauwels who was elected to the office of vice-chair of the Visual Communication Studies Division, and Mary Bock, who will serve as secretary to the Division.

I would also like to take the opportunity to remind you of the approaching deadline for submissions (papers, panels, extended abstracts) to our division (which you will find in alphabetical order as the last in the pulldown menu on the submission website) for the 2008 Montreal conference. The deadline is November 1, 11 p.m. EST. Please do not wait until the very last minute to submit your proposals!

Very much looking forward to a large turnout, with kind regards from Bremen, Germany,

Marion G. Muller, Chair
