The 5th International Crisis Communication Conference will take place at *Universidade Católica Portuguesa*, *in Lisbon ( Portugal), on* *October 19 – 21* .

Timothy Coombs* - Texas A&M University is the first confirmed keynote speaker.

The 5th International Crisis Communication Conference aims to discuss how crisis communication can be used by business and the public sector in a strategic fashion. *Which theories and case studies can help better plan and implement crisis communication plans?* How do organizations learn from the past, i.e. how do they evaluate previous crisis in order to be better prepared for the future? How did the digital challenge traditional strategies of crisis communication? Which sorts of new risks are brought by digital media and how can one learn from previous online crisis? Are corporate and non-corporate organizations ready to face online crisis communication?

While seeking an answer for these questions, the conference will deepen and extend the exchange of ideas and approaches across disciplines and between Crisis Communication theories and researches.
