Keynote speeches will be given at Thursday March 3. More information on speakers and keynotes will be added in short time. 

On Wednesday March 2 there will be a special PhD program, specific for PhD students who were selected to join based on their abstracts. This PhD program is a joined effort of YECREA and NEFCA, the Netherlands Flanders Communication Association.

The conference will feature traditional paper presentations and co-creative sessions between academics and media professionals.

Traditional paper presentations will take place in panels of four papers. Panels will be moderated by a respondent.  who will also actively stimulate a debate on the overarching panel topic. Therefore there is a strict slot on every presentation: no more than 10 minutes! 

A limited number of slots will be available for co-creative sessions (‘Scholars meet practitioners’) where one topic is addressed in four short presentations, followed by an organized debate between academics and invited media professionals with an expertise on the topic.

During the conference researchers the participants will be interviewed on specific themes by students. The summary compilation of these interviews will be published afterwards in a video.

A detailed program follows in February.
