In this letter, Bruce Girard, IAMCR Executive Director, reflects on the 2020 conference transition from Beijing to Tampere. It was sent on 25 February, 2020, with the first of a series of "Tampere Updates", sent to current IAMCR members and potential participants of IAMCR Tampere 2020.
This month IAMCR holds elections for the Executive Board and International Council. The online voting period will run from 11 May to 31 May 2020. All current members are eligible to vote, including those who take out or renew their IAMCR membership until Wednesday, 27 May.
UPDATE: On 19 March IAMCR appealed to its members for help translating “Journalism, Fake News & Disinformation” into new languages. According to UNESCO, 200 proposals were received and the handbook is being translated into 30 new languages. Thank you to all the IAMCR members who offered to help!
In light of the inability to gather face-to-face, IAMCR's International Council adopted an extraordinary measure to enable online elections for those sections and working groups scheduled to hold elections in 2020. The deadline to submit candidacies is 10 June, 2020.
We have compiled the abstracts accepted for presentation in the Online Conference Papers component of the 2020 annual conference. Download them from the conference website.
The deadline to apply for the 2020 Urban Communication Research Grant has been extended to 30 April. The grant is worth $1,750 and supports communication and media research that advances understanding of the growing complexity of the urban environment.
