After the organization of twelve (12) successful International Conferences (see Previous Conferences ), the 8th International Conference on Communication and Management (ICCM2023), entitled ‘What will Communication be like? Future directions on global challenges and tensions’, provides a forum to share knowledge, consider how to adapt to current challenges and co-develop a sustainable path for a better future.

The Covid-19 pandemic was the impetus that gave life to a new normal introducing new terms such as, the infodemic[1] epidemic (see Kefalaki & Karanicolas, 2020). At the same time, we were made aware of how vulnerable and unprepared we were at a local and global level. Nevertheless, this unprecedented crisis that digitalized our lives, provided us a chance to create, innovate and promote knowledge sharing. This year’s conference themes will focus on promoting effective communication, access and equity, empathy, knowledge sharing and exchange, building resilience and devising possible solutions that will take educational practices into the future, despite the uncertainty that our learners face in this changing world.

We propose, not exclusively, four thematic panels:

  1. a) Panel on Leadership and Management
  2. b) Panel on Multidisciplinary Approaches to New Media Technologies
  3. c) Panel on New Horizons in Journalism
  4. d) Panel on Sustainable development
