After the organization of ten (10) successful Annual International Conferences (see the Previous Conferences of COMinG), the 7th International Conference on Communication and Management (ICCM2022), entitled ‘Communicate to Innovate and Innovate to Communicate’  provides opportunities for academics, students and professionals, from various fields and cross-disciplinary interests, to discuss the future directives and innovations in communication, marketing and management. This interdisciplinary conference welcomes papers that deal with innovation and communication, especially when they treat and propose solutions to the actual ‘strange’ situation around the world.

The conference will take place remotely, during 4 (four) days in connection with the EDU2022 conference (2+2 days ), as we believe that educators in communication and in education have a lot to learn from each other.

The conference themes will be under four thematic panels:

a) Panel on Leadership and Management

b) Panel on Multidisciplinary Approaches to New Media Technologies

c) Panel on New Horizons in Journalism

d) Panel on Sustainable development

During the conference we also  propose a workshop facilitated along two days (2+2 hours) by well known academics around the world, entitled Qualities we should aspire as academics, facilitated across two days. Please click here for the tentative program.
