Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication, Pune organised a two-day international conference for media and communication (ICMAC). The conference boasted of international academicians as speakers and took place on September 21st and 22nd, 2018 at SIMC, Lavale, Pune.
“On the background of ever-changing media landscape around us, ICMAC focuses especially on ‘New Media’. It aims at bringing academicians, researchers and practitioners on a common platform to share, discuss and debate multiple aspects of new media”, said Dr Ruchi Jaggi, Director, SIMC.
Dr. Anabel Quan-Hasse from the Western University, Canada, Dr. Kaitlynn Mendes from the University of Leicester, UK and Dr. Kevin Sanson from the Queensland Technological University, Australia, were the keynote speakers for this conference which dealt with a wide expanse of issues like digital journalism, effects of new media on branding and consumer behaviour, OTT platforms, virtual reality, new-media driven innovations and business practices, sociology of new media and so on.
Besides the keynote addresses and paper presentations, ICMAC highlighted two unique practices by offering a separate ‘emerging scholars’ section where postgraduate and PhD scholars participated. The aim was to encourage and mentor young researchers in this field. Apart from this, there was a line-up of excellent pre-conference sessions conducted by the distinguished international speakers, where they spoke in great detail about the latest issues in their respective fields.
