The Human Communication and Technology Division invites panels and papers that examine theory and application of communication technologies that enable and support human communication, including studies of communication discourse, practice, policy, pedagogy, new media, and other topics.

This year's convention theme, "Moving Forward, Looking Back," is well suited to HCTD papers. The study of human communication and new/old technologies challenges us to learn from the past, connect in the present, and prepare for the future. Papers that address these challenges, connections, and preparations are particularly welcome.
The Division is especially interested in papers and panels featuring human communication and technology as related to the future of our discipline and historical perspectives on the impact of technology in communication studies. In addition, papers and panels that relate human communication and technology to the areas of rhetoric, ethics, intellectual property rights, teaching and learning, security, accessibility, accountability, globalism, distance education, training and development, and community and organizational contexts, are welcome.

All submissions must be made online through the NCA site. You will be directed to the All Academic site with prompts to clarify the process.

Submissions will be accepted only in these formats: Word, WordPerfect, PDF (Adobe Acrobat), Rich Text. Do NOT compress files before sending. Audio visual requests should accompany your submission.

Submission deadline: February 16, 2004

Approximately 25% of programs will be discussion panels; papers selected for these panels will be posted online for convention attendees to read prior to the convention.

Papers should aim for no more than 25 pages of text and will include a 250-500 word abstract. No information identifying the author may appear in the paper.
