The international conference on Future of Media and Communication Research: Media Ecology and Big Data welcomes abstracts that deal with original quantitative or qualitative research related to any sub-themes listed under the Submissions page. The abstracts that are submitted to the conference will be reviewed by a panel of scholars put together by the scientific research committee from Fudan University, China and Ohio University, USA.
In the age of new technology and big data, the media landscape in China and around the world is changing rapidly with the rise of social media and digital media. The media ecology brings various new topics for the media industry, academics and scholars. Areas being explored at all institutional/organizational sectors of media include—but not limited to—media convergence, the use of big data, and audience engagement. This program will be of interest to academics, industry and other interested stakeholders who are working with digital technology, media or mass communication to ideate and present new approaches to addressing or exploring these important topics. Also, developing an updated curriculum with social/digital media literary and big data analytics is becoming an interesting topic in communication education.
We welcome research papers on seven sub-themes to discuss new media and big data: new communication research paradigm; media industry change; news production and data journalism; media use and engagement; computational social science and communication research; health communication; and big data and communication education. We are looking forward to receiving abstracts for potential vibrant research presentations at this international conference and to welcoming you in Shanghai, China.
