Call for Abstracts: 2023 NCCU-SNU-UT Annual International Symposium

2023 NCCU-SNU-UT Annual International Symposium

Mediating the World in the Digital Age: Politics and Culture of Technological Change

Call for Abstracts

Date: October 26 to 28, 2023

Location: Tokyo, Japan

This year's symposium will be held at the University of Tokyo from October 26th to 28th, 2023 (Thursday to Saturday). The theme of this year’s symposium is “Mediating the World in the Digital Age: Politics and Culture of Technological Change.” Today, the expansion of AI technologies such as ChatGPT and the increasing digitization of our everyday lives have become controversial topics, raising debate among scholars in many fields, including media, information, communication, and journalism. At this symposium, we would like to discuss multifaceted implications of technology broadly conceived by looking not only at its technical aspects but also at its political, social, and cultural dimensions.

All doctoral and master's students in the College of Communication are invited to submit research abstracts in English (word count: 250-800) to by 5 p.m. on July 24th, 2023 (Monday). The abstract should include a cover page using the attached template. All abstracts will be reviewed by the professors of the College of Communication, and the results will be announced on IMICS's website before August 10th. Presenters DONOT need to submit a full paper for the event, but the poster/slides are required (We will notify you of the deadline later).

The itinerary, including accommodation and flights, will be co-planned by the organizing committee and NCCU; presenters are expected to cooperate fully. Students should arrive in Tokyo on October 26th, participate in the symposium the following day, and depart for Taipei on the evening of October 28th. NCCU will try to cover most of each student's airfare and accommodation expenses, if not all; the student must understand that they may be required to bear a portion of their travel expenses if necessary. To receive the funding, the presenter should be enrolled at NCCU until NCCU wires the funding to you. If the presenter is not a Taiwanese citizen, he/she is responsible for obtaining a valid visa to Japan before setting off. The presentation will take the form of poster style, with each presenter giving a 10-minute presentation, followed by the Q&A session.
