Special Session on Computer science
& Mediated Communication Technologies”
As part of the
23-26 April 2018, Athens, Greece
The Communication Institute of Greece (COMinG) invites you to submit your abstract at its Special session on Multidisciplinary Media & Mediated Communication Technologies as part of the 4th Annual International Conference on Communication and Management (ICCM2018), 23-26 April 2018, Athens, Greece.
The aim of the panel is to bring together academics, researchers and professionals, of all areas of Communication Technologies (ICTs) & Computer Science.
You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair a session or as an observer.
During the last decades, the digital revolution that we have all experienced through the widespread deployment of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has multilaterally influenced individual’s perception about significant aspects of everyday life. Among others, the massive adoption of Internet technologies and the transition to the Web 2.0 /3.0 paradigms (and beyond) have shaped a dynamically changing media environment. The proliferation of manageable multimedia capturing, processing and sharing tools engaged people to be actively involved in the news production and consumption processes. As a result, new forms of digital journalism and mass communication are continuously launched and elaborated, thus advancing contemporary media services. Among others, easier information exchange is favored by the efficient collaboration between remotely-located users, groups, professionals and experts of various kinds, therefore promoting pluralism and diversity with timely- and geographically-boundless news coverage (i.e. without time and/or location restrictions). Along with the contemporary journalism technologies (i.e. robot-, drone-, immersive-journalism, etc.), new digital storytelling potentials also appear, aiming at offering enhanced capabilities of content capturing, processing automation and augmented user interaction.
The proposed session has been formed to serve the highly demanding interdisciplinary needs of contemporary media and mediated communication. Both technological and social aspects of the rapidly changing media landscape are considered among the involved scientific disciplines, including, but not limited to, the following topics :
- New Media (theories and practices),
- Media Technology and Computational Journalism,
- Data Journalism and Visualization,
- Technology of Electronic Media and Digital Broadcasting,
- Online Censorship and Web evaluation,
- Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing in media,
- Distant Learning practices,
- Distributed and 3D printing,
- Human Machine Interaction and Multimedia,
- Virtual and Augmented Reality,
- Robot /Drones Journalism, and others.
- Pervasive media and Ubiquitous Computing
- Automated Journalism and Smart Systems
- Media security and Data Protection
- Digital content archiving, documentation and management
- Social Media and Networking Services,
- Digital storytelling, authoring and software technologies
- Computational and Artificial Intelligence,
- Social Networks,
- Wireless Communications, and others.

The Communication Institute of Greece (COMinG) was established in 2003 in France. In Greece, since 2013, it appeared as an independent academic association that has for mission to become a forum, where academics and researchers – from all over the world – can meet in Greece to exchange ideas on their research and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.
The conference is under the auspices of the The European Economic Interest Grouping. Additionally the Center of Intercultural Dialog and The Braun Foundation for International Exchange are promotion partners.
