Its diverse international membership fosters and promotes an appreciation for the differences among countries and cultures that contribute to characteristics that differentiate national media markets and shape relationships among them. Past conferences were held in Chicago, San Francisco, Saarbrücken, New York, Lisbon, Pamplona, Moscow, Seoul, Sao Paulo and Stuttgart.

*About IMMAA 2019 Conference - Media Management and Innovation*

The IMMAA 2019 Conferencewelcomes contributions from diverse perspectives. Papers are encouraged to examine practical examples in case study approaches and all qualitative and quantitative approaches to research. Prioritization will be given to papers related to three key dimensions: 1 - Conceptual investigations that deconstruct the concept of ‘innovation’. What is innovation at a time when new has become the norm? How has research about media innovation and its management evolved over time? To what extent is media innovation dependent on technology, and what matters beyond technology? How can policy support media innovation? What do the global North-South dichotomy and its narratives tell us about media management and innovation? 2 - Empirical explorations that open discussion about the results of experimentation and investigations pertaining to creative media outputs, creative media models, creative processes and procedures in media organizations- and how to manage all of this effectively. How are media institutions prepare and cope with an evolving media environment with changing patterns of consumption? 3 - Academic queries pertaining to the education of media management in ways that are innovative in pedagogy and curricular design. How is the media management curriculum evolving to embrace today’s dynamic industry environment? How do media schools and programs prepare students to work as competent managers in a dynamic environment that is increasingly global and cross-cultural?
