ECREA 2020 has received the highest number of submissions ever for the European Communication Association conference.
In total, 2020 submissions have been made – 1770 individual submissions to sections, temporary working groups and networks, and 50 panels (each with five participants).
These numbers are proof of ECREA’s growing relevance for both European and International Communication scholars (Prague, in 2016, had attracted 1986 submissions and Lugano, in 2018, had reached 1913 submissions).
Speaking for the Local Organizing Committee, Helena Sousa said: “we are very pleased with the number of submissions and we are working very hard to make this an exceptional academic event in October”.
The proposals will now be reviewed and authors will be notified until March, 25th. The participation confirmation deadline is April, 15th.
