2021(https://coming.gr/hepo2021-call-for-papers/), hybrid conference
(both face to face and remotely), Athens, Greece
The Communication Institute of Greece (COMinG)
invites you to its
2nd International Hellenic Conference on Political Sciences:
Communicating in Politics?
1-5 August 2021, to be held both face-to-face (in Athens , Greece) and
remotely (for the participants that might still face travel restrictions)
After the organization of seven successful annual international
conferences (look Previous Conferences of COMinG), the 2nd International
Hellenic Conference on Political Sciences: Communicating in Politics?
(HEPO2021), aims to provide an opportunity for academics, professionals
and industry experts from the field of political science, with
cross-disciplinary interests, to discuss the future directives and
innovations in their discipline.
This year, apart from our face-to-face conference, we also propose and
promote online participation, as some countries/participants might still
face travel restrictions. Even if remote participation will only require
half the normal registration fee, we will do our best to provide
participants with equal opportunities to exchange, share, and
communicate, as with F2F participants.
We propose a new interdisciplinary platform for the presentation of
empirical and theoretical work that is reflective of a highly dynamic
political arena both domestically and internationally. The conference
seeks to receive contributions from scholars who recognize that
political science needs to vindicate its relevance by tackling today’s
challenges while predicting future themes.
We aim to establish a hub for academics that engage with peers over the
latest advances and research results in any sub-field of political
science, international relations, and especially political
communication, both in the shape of empirical and theoretical work. The
theme of the conference is meant to inspire and bring together academic
leaders, researchers, and scholars who like to think outside the box and
transcend their disciplinary domain. While offering a forum to
established academics we also like to see proposals from a new
generation of researchers as well as outstanding research students who
like to share their work, receive feedback and exchange ideas with
faculty from all around the world. The unique aspect is that this
conference will take place in parallel with the 6th Annual International
Conference on Communication and Management, with the purpose to help
experts from different disciplines communicate and exchange.
