[ecrea] CFP for Rundle Summit Communications Conference

Sun Nov 18 16:21:42 GMT 2018


The Rundle Summit Organizing Committee is excited to announce that the Rundle Summit 2019 Call for Presentations is now open. The Rundle Summit is a graduate student led conference hosted annually in the beautiful rocky mountains in Banff, Alberta Canada.

The conference focuses on bringing together academic and professional perspectives on communication. The conference is sponsored jointly by the University of Calgary, Communication, Media and Film Program and the University of Alberta, Communications and Technology program. We welcome participants from across Canada and beyond, from any relevant discipline to join our discussion.

This year the Rundle Summit will be *February 22-24th* at the *Banff Centre for the Arts*.

The theme for this year’s Rundle Summit is *Tectonics: Landscapes in Conversation *evoking the constantly-shifting tectonic plates of the earth that create new formations as they crash into each other. The metaphor reflects the dynamic state of the communication landscape, one that is constantly evolving as new technologies send aftershocks through the fields of communication and media.

Rundle Summit welcomes proposals for a variety of formats:

  * Lightning talks (abstract: 300 words) are succinct five-minute
    presentations, well-suited for introducing an idea or a
    work-in-progress. Lightning-talk presenters will benefit from
    extended Q&A in which their ideas will be workshopped.
  * Long papers (abstract: 300 words) should be dynamic, 20-minute
    presentations. They can share a number of different things, such as
    research stories, reflections, challenges, or outcomes.
  * Multi-speaker panels (abstract: 300 words) address intersections or
    tensions within a particular topic or field. Every panelist should
    submit an individual abstract and note the title of the panel
    presentation so that reviewers can clearly see the panel’s composition.
  * Skills-sharing sessions (abstract: 300 words) are participant-led
    skills-development workshops and/or collaborative working groups
    focused on sharing knowledge about social-science tools and/or
    methodologies (e.g. teaching the basics of
    social-networking-analysis tool Gephi, or demystifying discourse

We also encourage proposals for alternative formats. When proposing a session, please include a description of the format in addition to the 300-word abstract.

The deadline for presentation proposals in *December 5th.*
Proposal decision notification: December 21, 2018
