21st International PR Symposium BledCom 2014 - 04.02.2014
Registration is now open. Discounted fees for Euprera members!
BledCom 2014 will take place on July 4 & 5, 2014, in the surroundings of the picturesque alpine lake Bled in Slovenia. Main topic of this year’s symposium will be Digital Publics: New Generation, New Media, New Rules.
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have influenced the lives of almost every human being on earth – some more directly than others. Bledcom wishes to explore ICTs and the various dimensions of their impact on our lives. These include not only the use of ICTs by corporations, a popular topic among public relations scholars who have addressed new media, but also their use by governments (e-governance and e-government, for example) and non-profits (ICTs for social good).
The keynote speaker on the first day will be Stephen Waddington, European Digital and Social Media Director for Ketchum and President of the CIPR. Stephen is a public relations consultant, author and journalist, with a reputation of a public relations moderniser.
The keynote speaker on the second day will be Sorin Adam Matei, Associate Professor of Communication at Purdue University, who specializes in research methods, multimedia design, usability, online interaction and online community development. A special panel by an innovative group of researchers at Lund University Campus Helsingborg NEMO: New Media, Modern Democracy, is also already confirmed. Preliminary program of this year's symposium will be published in March.
Registrations are already open and Euprera members can benefit of a 10% discount!
Deadline for early bird registration: May 15, 2014 (at midnight CET).
