Joint Call for Video Presentations at the IAMCR Beijing 2020 Conference

For a video on the video presentations, see https://vimeo.com/386971190

This call concerns the 2020 Congress of the International Association 
for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), which will be held from 12 
to 16 July, 2020 at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.

The call for video presentations is here:
The general IAMCR call is here:

Seven IAMCR sections and working groups (S&WGs) are participating in an 
experimental initiative to call for video presentations for the IAMCR 
2020 conference. These sections and working groups are: The 
Participatory Communication Research Section (PCR), the Popular Culture 
Working Group (POP), the Media, Communication and Sport Section (MCS), 
the Environment, Science & Risk Communication Working Group (ESR), the 
Emerging Scholars Network (ESN), the Comic Art Working Group (COA) and 
the Global Media Policy Working Group (GMP).

This initiative is driven by the need to make headway towards virtual 
conference participation. The participating S&WGs, supported by IAMCR’s 
Executive Board, believe that the association must provide alternatives 
to address the environmental impact that our conferences have, and the 
exclusions that characterise current conference models. As IAMCR 
members, we all have an ethical-ecological responsibility here. 
Moreover, the seven S&WGs believe that we should also acknowledge and 
stimulate the creative opportunities that video presentations can offer 
to conference presenters.

This is why these S&WGs call on IAMCR members to submit proposals for 
video presentations. As this is an experiment, proposals for video 
presentations can only be submitted to participating S&WGs (PCR, POP, 
MCS, ESR, ESN, COA and GMP). Non-participating sections and working 
groups will not accept them. Each participating S&WGs will accept a 
maximum of 10% video presentations of the total number of accepted 
conference presentations, based upon a regular review of the submitted 
abstracts. They will each program maximum one video presentation per 
conference panel.

Submissions of proposals for video presentations will follow the regular 
procedures for submitting proposals to the IAMCR conference. This means 
that abstracts must be submitted from 1 December 2019 through 10 
February 2020. We ask you to kindly submit proposals in good time at the 
abstract submission site at https://beijing2020.iamcr.org/submit.

The deadline for submission is 10 February 2020, at 23.59 UTC.
