DescriptionFor 15 years, the ICA Mobile Pre-Conference has been an interdisciplinary gathering of scholars, researchers, and practitioners who focus on mobile communication research. In recent years, the mobile pre-conference has been organized in the form of several interactive Blue Sky workshops. These provide a venue where scholars can present, learn and discuss their latest ideas, research, and skills around a limited number of themes related to mobile communication and mobile media. The pre-conference has been recently refocused to support the development of graduate students, junior scholars as well as scholars from the Global South. The pre-conference is seen as an opportunity to bring together a collection of colleagues with whom one can work out a common research vision. It is the ambition of the organizers that panels can result in, for example, writing a common paper on their theme of choice, or the publication of a special issue in a journal. The pre-conference is an opportunity for graduate students and new faculty to interact with more experienced mobile researchers to cultivate a supportive and integrated community of mobile scholars. Ideas discussed and presented at the mobile pre-conference have consistently nourished the theoretical and methodological foundations of mobile research, started joint research projects and eventually lead to publications in peer-reviewed journals. In addition to the Blue Sky workshops, the pre-conference features a conference lunch and dinner where scholars will interact in an informal and social atmosphere.
