After the organization of seven (7) successful Annual International Conferences (look at Previous Conferences of COMinG), the 6th Annual International Conference on Communication and Management (ICCM2020), aims to provide an opportunity for Academics, Professionals and Industry Experts from various fields, with cross-disciplinary interests, to discuss the future directives and innovations in Communication and Management.
We seek to build bridges between academia and professionals in the domains treated by this interdisciplinary conference. Thus we welcome Laboratories, Workshops, and Seminars to demonstrate projects, exchange and discuss ideas and share best- practices regarding the conference themes. Academics and professionals can participate by presenting a paper, chairing a session, organizing a panel, or even just by being an observer.

This year we propose different formats of presentation (Abstract, Workshop, Round Table Discussion or Poster Presentation).
