The 23rd International Conference of the International Association for Intercultural Communication Studies (IAICS) Call for Papers
June 6-8, 2017
Macao Polytechnic Institute, Macao
Conference Theme: “Languages and Cultures in a Globalizing World: Diversity, Interculturality, Hybridity”
In today’s world, globalization erases boundaries and leads to increased contact among various languages and cultures. While human contact and migration have always been present throughout history, e.g., on the Silk Road, today’s media and transport capacities facilitate contact and communication to an exponentially greater extent than ever before. As a consequence, the phenomena of diversity, interculturality and hybridity are intensified. Juxtaposed to increased contact ensuing from globalization are both the positive and negative aspects of the protectionist efforts of localism. The theme of this conference seeks to examine the context of these problems within the spheres of education, language, culture, and society.

* To advance the methodology for intercultural communication research and disseminate practical findings to facilitate understanding across cultures;
* To foster global intercultural sensitivity and involve educators, business professionals, students and other stakeholders worldwide in the discourse about diversity and transcultural communication issues.

The Development and Validation of the Intercultural Sensitivity Scale
Guo-Ming CHEN, Ph.D.
Department of Communication Studies
University of Rhode Island
Kingston, RI 02881, USA
The present study developed and assessed reliability and validity of a new instrument, the Intercultural Sensitivity Scale (ISS). Based on a review of the literature, 44 items thought to be important for intercultural sensitivity were generated for the purpose of analyses in this study. A sample of 414 college students rated these items and generated a 24-item final version of the instrument which contains five factors. An assessment of concurrent validity from 162 participants indicated that the ISS was significantly correlated with other related scales, including interaction attentiveness, impression rewarding, self-esteem, self-monitoring, and perspective taking. In addition, the predicted validity test from 174 participants showed that individuals with high ISS scores also scored high in intercultural effectiveness and intercultural communication attitude scales.
