69th Annual ICA Conference

Registration - Now Open!

The International Communication Association (ICA) is the premier academic association for scholars engaged in the study, teaching, and application of all aspects of human and mediated communication internationally.

We are pleased to announce registration for ICA’s 69th Annual Conference “Communication Beyond Boundaries” is now open! Explore a multitude of networking opportunities with your peers, stay abreast of current research in your area, all the while enjoying the rich culture and beautiful architecture offered in Washington, District of Columbia USA. Join your colleagues in pursuing excellence in the communication field - register today!!


  • The 69th Annual ICA Conference: “Communication Beyond Boundaries” will include both traditional research papers and panels.

  • Theme: Communication Beyond Boundaries aims for an understanding of the role of communication and media in the crossing of social, political and cultural boundaries that characterize contemporary society, and encourages research that crosses the boundaries of research domains, of particular fields of research interest, and of academia and the outside world.

  • Dates: 24-28 May, 2019 | Please remember that the conference is one day off the regular schedule this year: the pre-conferences and opening reception are on Friday instead of Thursday, and the final day of the conference is a Tuesday.

  • Conference Headquarters Location: Washington Hilton - 1919 Connecticut Ave., NW - Washington, District of Columbia, 20009, USA

  • Pre/postconference Registrations: All pre/postconference registration links are separate from the main conference registration. To register for a pre or postconference, visit this link:

  • ICA Travel Grant:


  • Please ensure your membership is current to avoid being charged the non-member rate during the conference registration process. Please note: sustaining and life members must still complete the registration form to confirm attendance.


ICA conference attendees have always had the ability to save money on registration by registering early. Traditionally, following the early registration period, online registration has remained open for a short window of time, however the prices have increased substantially to onsite pricing. New this year, ICA is pleased to share we’ve extended the online period following early registration and discounted the pricing for this option called Standard Registration.

  • EARLY REGISTRATION: Deadline: 16:00 UTC on 17 April
    Early registration begins on 16 January, 2019 and will close at 16:00 UTC on 17 April, 2019.

  • STANDARD REGISTRATION: Deadline: 16:00 UTC on 3 May
    Standard Registration will be available starting 16:01 UTC on 17 April 2019 until 16:00 UTC on 3 May. Following the standard registration period, registration online will close; registration will only be available in person, onsite.

    Attendees who have not completed an early or standard registration by 16:00 UTC on 3 May are welcome and encouraged to attend, but will be required to register onsite in Washington, DC USA, at the onsite conference rates. Hours will be posted at the registration desk.
