Paris 2007 - News
the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization,
provided funding to support four reports prepared for IAMCR's 50th Anniversary
Conference in Paris in 2007. The four reports are now available for download from UNESCO's website.
We had a very delightful and big 50th Anniversary celebration in Paris
in July 2007 thanks to the hard work of the Local Conference Organising
Committee. We marked IAMCR’s history and we paid tribute to former
IAMCR President, Professor James Halloran, who died on 16 July shortly
before the conference. There will be a lecture in his honour during
the 2008 conference.
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), founded in Paris in December 1957, the International Council of IAMCR has, at its meeting Sunday 22 July 2007, unanimously decided to appoint the following to become honorary members of the association:
Paris, 23 July 2007 - IAMCR's 50th anniversary conference was inaugurated today at UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Over three days (23-25 July) there will be more than 150 workshops and a further 100 poster sessions. More than 800 participants from 150 countries are attending. For more information, visit the conference website, consult the agenda online, or download it in PDF format. You can also read an article about the conference on UNESCO's website.
This message was received from Roque Faraone, professor of Communication Theory at the University of the Republic of Uruguay and a founding member of IAMCR in 1957.
Unable to be in Paris, and being perhaps the last surviving founding member, I send to you and plenty of other friends my warmest feelings, and a wish: Long live the aims of peace and solidarity the founding members had in 1957!
IAMCR celebrates its 50th anniversary this year in Paris where it was founded. The conference theme is “Media, Communication, Information: Celebrating 50 Years of Theories and Practices”.

The deadline for submitting abstracts for the Paris 2007 IAMCR conference has been extended by one month to 15 February 2007. The extension was granted to give IAMCR members more time to prepare following a recent decision by the IAMCR Conference Committee and the Local Organising Committee to invite Working Groups to organise sessions. Previously only Sections were invited to coordinate sessions.
Now that the Cairo conference is behind us, the work begins to prepare
for the Paris conference and the celebration of IAMCR’s 50th year. I am
grateful to all those who made Cairo a great success (as demonstrated
by the survey of participants which you can find at our website). I am
also grateful to the Paris local organising team for taking up the
challenge of preparing for next year.
The 2007 Paris conference at Unesco will be a special one: IAMCR will be celebrating its 50th birthday!
So the usual structure of the off-year conference will not be totally respected. The afternoon of the last day will be reserved for celebratory events - part assessment of the past, part strategies and scenarios for the future.
IAMCR Secretariat and the 2007 Conference Committee welcome the submission of papers for its 50th Anniversary Conference to be held on 23-25 July 2007 in Paris.
The present call for papers is available in English, French and Spanish.
