ICA19 Call For Papers

For ICA19, the Communication Science and Biology Interest Group welcomes the submission of full papers, abstracts, extended abstracts, posters, elevator sessions, problem solving sessions and other innovative presentation formats on a broad range of topics crossing the traditional boundaries of interpersonal, organizational, technological, mediated and mass communication and their sub-areas. Although the interest group is focused on work grounded in biological perspectives (theoretically or empirically), submissions may or may not include biological data. The most important criteria is that submissions provide a rationale, data, and follow a rigorous scientific approach as outlined in the interest group’s mission statement. Exclusively theoretical or methodical contributions are also invited, but can only be submitted as full papers.

Deadline: All submissions must be completed online no later than 16:00 UTC, 1 November 2018. To avoid technical problems, early submission is strongly encouraged. The conference submission website will go online around 1 September 2018. To reach the conference website, go to the ICA homepage at http://www.icahdq.org and follow the link for 2019 Conference Submission.

Job Calls

Chairperson. The Department of Communication in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University.

The Department of Communication in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University invites applications for the position of Chairperson.

We are looking for a visionary leader and social scientist with an understanding of the rich heritage of the past but with an eye on the future. Recently, the department has made hires and invested in labs in virtual reality, computational communication and neurocognitive communication. Candidates for Chairperson should have a broad vision of communication science that encompasses these new and emerging areas with the traditional strengths of the department in social influence and interpersonal, organizational, mediated, political, and health communication. Candidates should have a record of scholarship and reputation to justify appointment at the rank of tenured Full Professor.

The university has more than 49,000 students in 200 programs of undergraduate, graduate, and professional study, including more than 275 study abroad programs. The university is now debuting the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, a $730 million facility funded by the U.S. Department of Energy to advance understanding of rare nuclear isotopes and the evolution of the cosmos. The College of Communication Arts and Sciences began in 1955 and was the first of its kind in the world.
