Call for Papers





Call for papers

Communication has been playing a crucial and central role in the contemporary world which can be characterised as global, mobile and interactive. Today’s individuals cross international borders more than ever both in the online and offline spheres for purposes ranging from leisure to immigration. Likewise, businesses carry out geographically dispersed operations all around the globe with a growing percentage of mobilized workforce. Communication offers a key strength for facilitating and enhancing all these encounters as it provides the means by which orientation, cooperation, collaboration and integration can be achieved and maintained.  

The 2017 edition of Maltepe University International Communication Students Congress (ICSC 2017) will focus on the main theme of “Communication Matters: Globalisation, Mobility and Integration”. We welcome submissions of BA students for individual papers and panel proposals (including up to 4 papers), media practice contributions (audio / video) and posters that should be addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Communication and technology as a driver of globalisation
  • Social media and intercultural communication
  • International business, fragmented communication and communication tools for collaboration and cooperation
  • Effective communication tools for the mobilised workforce
  • E-businesses, global trade and innovative communication applications
  • Immigration, refugees and communication needs
