The 26th International Public Relations Research Symposium (BledCom)

The main 2019 conference theme is *»Trust and Reputation«*. Trust is a foundation of social (and organizational) order and also serves as the underpinning of healthy relationships, exchanges and transactions. There is a growing concern globally that social and organizational trust is eroding, and that it has become harder for organizations to build and protect relationships with stakeholders many of whom themselves seem to be in conflict. In such a challenging environment, how does/should public relations (re)build trust and reputation to help us function as social beings operating in harmonious societies?

2nd International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Discourse and Communication in Professional Contexts

We have seen an upsurge in research into organizational communication, PR communication, corporate communication, branding communication etc. Whereas this voluminous strand of research has delved ever deeper into the instrumental nature of organizational/corporate communication, little attention, outside organizational discourse studies, has been devoted to examining what happens when we allow organizational/corporate communication to constitute the reality in which we live. This conference explores our understanding of what dark side communication activities ‘are’ and what they ‘do’ in or with reference to organizational contexts.

The conference is organized by the Communicating Organizations Research Group at Aalborg University

NordMedia 2019

In an increasingly interconnected and accelerated world, our academic field offers significant opportunities to grapple with shifting and often contentious media and communication landscapes. With these opportunities comes a charge for responsible research and reporting of results, as scholars make their work public through their teaching, publishing, and engagement in the world beyond the academy. Are we living up to this charge? Do our current approaches work? How might we work both responsibly and creatively?

The NordMedia 2019 conference will be open for abstract submissions at the beginning of January 2019. The deadline for abstract submission is February 28th, 2019. At the end of March, the chairs of the divisions/working groups will have made their decision and an acceptance or rejection letter will be sent by email. The deadline for full papers and long abstracts is June 30th.
