Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap, February 8-9, 2018: call for abstracts

2 November 2017

The next edition of the Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap ('24 hours of Communication Sciences') will be hosted by Ghent University on February 8-9, 2018. Etmaal welcomes proposals on a wide scope of topics that aim to discuss and reflect on today’s interconnected, international and transcultural media environment, and this in terms of theoretical concepts, applied methodology and empirical findings. Particular attention is devoted towards the cultural exchange and relationship between the Netherlands and Flanders who, although sharing the same language and having a history of joint ownerships and mergers, appear to be two media systems living apart together.

Call for abstracts


Abstracts, either on the conference theme of “transcultural exchanges & communication flows” or on other issues in media and communication sciences, should be:

  • 750 words, references excluded
  • Written in Dutch or English
  • Clearly present topic, theoretical framework, method, data, results and conclusion
  • Indicate a division in which it should be considered (see NeFCA for a description of each division):

o    Health Communication
o    Journalism
o    Media Psychology
o    Media Industries and Policies
o    Organizational Communication
o    Persuasive Communication
o    Political Communication
o    Popular Communication


The deadline for abstract submission is Sunday, November 5, 23u59.

Abstracts can be submitted here.

This year, the Etmaal will only accept a maximum of one submission as the first author (with no limitation regarding amount of submissions as co-author) to guarantee a diversity of speakers and equal chances for all to attend the conference.
