CCA 2012 Annual Meeting:
Call for papers on the theme “Technology and Emerging Media”
Starting this year, various initiatives will be set up to foster exchanges around the theme “Technology and Emerging Media” within the Canadian Communication Association. Notably, a meeting will be scheduled during the upcoming CCA annual conference to discuss the possible creation of an interest group. There also are plans to publish papers that will be presented at this conference, which will take place in Waterloo, Ontario from May 30 to June 1, 2012. This publication project will take the form of online proceedings edited by the two theme co-chairs.
Instructions to authors:
Articles must have been previously presented at the Canadian Communication Association (CCA) conference under the theme “Technology and Emerging Media” (see deadline and link below for submission details):
Please note that this theme focuses upon the following topics:
– Information and communication technologies, notably their design, diffusion, and uses;
– Digital media and related social phenomena;
– Issues relating to recent technological innovations in the field of communication -e.g., social media/social Web, mobile media, online games, and new diffusion platforms for traditional media.
Papers should meet the criteria of a scholarly article, and must therefore include an outline of the problem/issue being addressed, a theoretical or conceptual framework, as well as a description of research method(s) employed. The editors reserve the right to reject a text that doesn’t meet these criteria.
Papers should be between 25,000 and 35,000 characters in length, including spaces, footnotes and bibliography. They may contain tables and pictures. The text should be organized in sections identified by titles and subtitles. Bibliographical references should appear at the end of the text and follow the APA format (6th edition). The first page must contain the title of the paper, authors’ names with their affiliations and institutional addresses, as well as a 150-word abstract.
