On November 28, 29 and 30 of 2018, the XIII Congress of LUSOCOM will be held in Maputo, Mozambique. The main theme of the meeting will be “Communication and information for development”.
Promoting today the social, cultural and economic development of a country or a geographical region can not be seen as an independent task of the dynamization of communication processes and the viability of free information flows. For this purpose, in this conference of LUSOCOM, researchers are invited to reflect on the relationship between communication, information and development. Work proposals will be welcomed that, in each thematic group, bear this problem in mind and discuss it in the perspective of Portuguese-speaking countries.
