Communication, Peace and Security in the 21st Century

The deadline for paper/panel submissions is Sunday, November 1, 2015.

Communication, Peace and Security in the 21st Century is concerned with two developments that highlight the first decade and a half of the 21st Century: Information abundance and the ubiquity of mobile communication devices. While these trends are believed to have facilitated political uprisings and revolutions, there is much debate over whether they have increased the world’s peace and security. This special one-day conference examines this important question at the international, state and individual level.

Speakers include: Professors Robert Entman (George Washington University), Lene Hansen (University of Copenhagen), Steven Livingston (George Washington University) and Phil Seib (University of Southern California)

Proposal Types

Papers are the foundation of the conference and can be submitted individually or within a larger panel proposal. Papers generally need a title, abstract, three tags and the author(s) to submit. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 300 words.

Note that, if you have a paper that was submitted on a panel, you should not submit the paper independently a second time. 

Panels

Panels must have a title, abstract and tag words as well as 4-5 papers (complete with title, tags, abstract and authors) and at least 1 chair and discussant. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 300 words.

Please note that papers submitted on panels should not be submitted a second time independently of the panel. If the panel is not accepted, the papers submitted on the panel go into the normal wait pool with all of our other papers.
