Flow34 - Call for proposals 2023

The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) calls for academic audio/visual work to be presented online and at IAMCR’s 2023 conference at Lyon, France.

See the CfPs of all sections and working groups >

With this call, IAMCR aims to stimulate the use of a broader range of modes for the communication of academic knowledge, complementing conference papers and oral presentations with audio/visual work. In particular, we seek podcasts and videos that integrate academic and aesthetic dimensions, and that use sound and/or image creatively to communicate academic knowledge. This implies that we will not select audio/visual work that merely consists of recorded lectures.

We call for audio/visual work with a maximum duration of 30 minutes, but shorter contributions are also welcomed. 

Submission guidelines

Proposals for presentation of audio/visual work will consist of one abstract, which will have two parts, namely an academic description of the work and a (basic) script of the audio/visual work. The academic description describes the research communicated by the audio/visual work (its research question, theoretical framework, methodology, research design and corpus, …), while the script provides a chronological description of the form of the audio/visual work. 

The abstract (with its two parts) has a maximum length of 750 words. Abstracts must be submitted online here

The deadline to submit abstracts is 9 February 2023 at 23h59 UTC.

The Flow34 evaluation team will review the submitted proposals, announcing their decisions in March 2023. The audio/visual work itself will then need to be submitted by 5 June 2023.

The selected works will be presented online from 25 June until 9 September and during the conference in Lyon from 9-13 July. Flow34 creators are not required to attend the Lyon conference. If you do want to attend, select the format Lyon23 and OCP23 when you submit your abstract. If you do not want or cannot attend the face-to-face conference, select the format OCP23 only


Abstracts and scripts must be submitted in English. The final work can be in any language.
