As communicated earlier, the CLP section will again award a Best Student Paper Award to acknowledge excellent contributions to our field from young scholars. All PhD students whose abstract was accepted for the European Communication Conference (ECC) and wish to be considered will have to submit a full paper by the specified deadline to be eligible for the ECREA-CLP Best Student Paper Award. The paper has to be single-authored by the student, or, in case the paper is co-authored, the PhD student has to be first author. The deadline for submission of full papers for the ECREA-CLP Best Student Paper Award 2016 is October 1, 2016.

Moreover, elections for section management for the appointment of a Chair and two Vice-Chairs for the period 2016-2018 are coming up. Two members of the current management team are willing to run again; the current chair will step down. However, other candidacies are welcome. We are inviting nominations by individuals for all positions. Please send your nomination accompanied by a 150 word (max) statement (if you so wish) to Manuel Puppis (email@example.com) by July 31, 2016. Please note that ECREA’s bylaws stipulate that the Chair and at least one of the two Vice Chairs need to have a PhD. Moreover, disciplinary, regional, gender and age balance needs to be respected within the management team.
See you soon in Prague!
A very Happy New Year from your section management team!

Our section invites a broad range of paper proposals:
The Communication Law and Policy section provides a forum for the debate and analysis of past and current national and EU legal, regulatory and policy directions in the field of European media and communication. The field is interpreted broadly to include political, social, cultural, anthropological and economic questions. The section invites contributions (proposals for papers, posters or panels) in any area of (broadly understood) European media and communication law, regulation and policy, including historical, comparative and philosophical approaches to this domain. We welcome critical methodologies and analyses, as well as discussions on new ways of thinking about policy and law in the media, communication and cultural industries. We also welcome empirical studies of policy or the policy making process as well as evidence aimed at contributing to debates on current policy issues, especially those that use interdisciplinary approaches and push the boundaries of established work.
You may submit proposals for individual papers, panels, and posters. The maximum length of individual abstracts is 500 words. Panel proposals combine a panel rationale with five panel paper abstracts, each of which shall be a maximum length of 500 words.
Proposals can be submitted on the conference website http://www.ecrea2016prague.eu until the end of February. The website also provides all the relevant information (registration, accommodation, etc.).
