The 72nd Annual International Communication Association Conference brings together its diverse range of international members from over 80 countries to advance the academic study of communication through worldwide research.

The theme of this year’s ICA Conference is ‘One World, One Network?’, which looks to simultaneously celebrate and question ‘one-ness’. With a mixture of virtual and in-person events, from paper panels, poster sessions and roundtable discussions, to hybrid high density sessions, ‘speed dating’ sessions and daytime and evening networking events.

ICA’s journal Annals of International Communication Association: https://www.tandfonline.com/journals/rica20 .  All ICA members have access to the journal, and we welcome new submissions!
