International Communication Association
Mobile Communication Pre-conference
Mobile media as (tools for) Interventions
Like last year, the mobile pre-conference will be organized in the form of interactive Blue Sky workshops. In these workshops, 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 workshops provide a forum where graduate students and new faculty can interact with more experienced mobile researchers, thereby cultivating a supportive and integrated community of mobile scholars. Ideas discussed and presented at the mobile pre-conference have consistently nourished the theoretical foundations of mobile research, started joint research projects and eventually lead to publications in peer-reviewed journals.
