Latin America ICA conference

2nd Latin America ICA Conference
Dialogues between Tradition and Contemporaneity in the Latin America and International Communication Studies
Universidade de Brasília, 26 – 28 March, 2014

The 2nd Latin America ICA Conference, organized by the Post-Graduate Program of Communication Faculty of the University of Brasilia (FAC / UNB), co-organised with the International Communication Association (ICA), will be held in Brasilia / Brazil, 26-28 March, 2014. The conference will take place at the Campus Darcy Ribeiro, University of Brasilia, located in the North Wing of the Brazilian capital city. The event is supported by the Latin American Communication Researchers Association (Alaic), the Brazilian Interdisciplinary Studies of Communication Society (Intercom) and the Brazilian Journalism Researchers Association (SBPJor).

The conference aims to:
– contribute to the dissemination of regional and international communication research, and develop regional/international academic and research partnerships;
– create a space for dialogue for the positions of researchers and scholars who share an interest in the processes of communication;
– promote dialogue among different academic traditions, open to different schools of thought within communication in Latin America and other parts of the world.

The official languages are Portuguese, Spanish and English. Papers and presentations must necessarily use one of these languages. There will not be simultaneous translation in WGs and panel sessions (unless the panel organizers provide it). Presenters may designate one of the participants as translator. Moreover, we suggest the use of resources (multimedia or printed documents) in different language than the oral presentation.

*The online submission of original papers and panel proposals should be emailed by November 20, 2013, until 23:59 Brasilia time.
*It is recommended that submitters avoid sending proposals in the last days before the closing date.

Papers to be published
About 15 texts that have been presented during the conference will be selected by the Scientific Committee and ICA to be published in a special section of the International Journal of Communication, IJOC (, from Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism (University of Southern California, USC). The article must be translated into English. The author’s permission will be requested to publish it. The copies must be translated into English and authors will be asked to agree to permission for publication.
