A lot is happening at your favorite ECREA section these days.
We are busy finalizing the CLP section’s program for the upcoming ECREA conference in Prague next November. We will have more sessions in our section than ever before, ten in total, a number of interesting poster presentations and an exhilarating business meeting (as always). If you have not registered for the conference yet, please do so as soon as possible in order to benefit from the early bird registration fee at http://www.ecrea2016prague.eu.
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. For more information please see https://commlawpolicy.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/ecrea-clp-best-student-paper-award-2016.pdf.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
