To accommodate the new schedule of the Online Conference Papers, in light of the change from a face-to-face conference to online activities, the deadline for applications for the 2020 Smythe Award has been extended to 30 April.
Given the rapid and unpredictable developments associated with COVID-19 at present, and the health and safety issues and constraints associated with travel and conference activity, IAMCR and our partners at Tampere University, are planning online activities in lieu of a face-to-face conference in Finland.
Nominations for the 2020 elections reflect IAMCR’s global membership. For the Executive Board we have one nominee for President, five nominees for Vice President from four continents, and one candidate each for secretary general and treasurer. For the International Council, we have 27 nominees from sixteen different countries and one territory.
Nominations are closed for candidates for IAMCR's Executive Board and International Council. Online elections will be held in May. The complete list of candidates and their statements can be found on the Election 2020 page.
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.
IAMCR will make several awards and grants available to members in 2020: The Prize in Memory of Dallas Smythe, the UCF/IAMCR Urban Communication Research Grant, the New Directions for Climate Communication Research Fellowship and the IAMCR Travel Grants for early-stage scholars. The deadline to apply for most awards is 30 April 2020.
