Young Scholars Workshop

We kindly invite Ph.D students and junior faculty to participate in the young scholars workshop held on the third day of the conference, on Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 at Aalto University School of Business.

During the workshop, participants and senior faculty members from Finland and abroad will discuss the papers submitted by the participants and talk about methodological and theoretical issues in communication research. The workshop provides also an opportunity to discuss research career issues and career development with senior scholars/faculty members. The workshop is included in the main conference fee. You can sign up to the workshop and submit summary of your paper via the submission system (link below). The summaries should not exceed 300 words. 

All accepted participants are expected to submit 1 000-1 500 -word paper of their work at the end of September and give short presentation of their work during the workshop.

Please notice: If you want to apply only for the Young Scholars Workshop, please leave the 'abstract text' part of the submission system empty (fill out the other parts normally) and then continue to fill out the Young Scholars Workshop related text fields.


The submission deadline was May 5, 2017. Thank you for the submissions!

We have informed the authors about the acceptance of their presentations on June 21. Please note, that only the designated contact person of the abstract has been informed and is therefore responsible for informing the co-authors. If you have any questions, please contact us: icsi2017@jyu.fi.
