The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) has announced the impossibility of holding the annual congress in a face-to-face mode. The event, which had already been moved from its initial location in Beijing to the Finnish city of Tampere due to the risk of expansion of COVID-19, will finally take place online. Through a public letter signed by the president Janet Jasko, the Association recognizes the infeasibility of organizing this conference without risks and constant changes and also rules out its postponement to avoid overlaps with the next meeting, scheduled for July 2021.
Under the title ‘Reimagining the Digital Future: Building inclusiveness, respect and reciprocity‘, the present edition of the congress received 2400 communication proposals, whose evaluation and acceptance will be communicated in the coming days. Given the impossibility of developing all the scheduled activities and sessions online, the IAMCR Virtual 2020 will offer plenary sessions through high-quality recordings and live streamings and will include an online document repository so that researchers with accepted papers can share their work with the rest of the participants and thus receive their comments and replies.
The virtual conference will keep the dates that had been planned for the face-to-face meeting and will be held from July 12 to 16.
