Human Communication and Technology Division
Conference Programming Highlights
We're looking forward to seeing
you at the Human Communication Technology Division's twenty
sessions in San Antonio this November. We have
a diverse program on
communication technologies, relevant communication theory, and the
application and effects of communication technologies in
Blogs, E-mail, mobile telephones, games, virtual groups, online libraries, Powerpoint
presentations, social spaces, and web sites. We've
organized 52 excellent
papers (75% of
the 69 papers submitted) into 10 panels
(and wish we could
have scheduled more). We've also scheduled eight competitively
selected panels (57% of those submitted). In total that's an
decrease of three sessions (20
including the business meeting), from last year's 23 sessions. Let's all work
to increase the HCTD
In keeping with the conference theme, "Creating Sites for Connection and Action," much of the content examines communication within the discipline, society or world including issues about gender and sex roles, identity, and connecting families using communications technologies!
Thanks to all the authors who submitted papers and panels, to the legion of reviewers who read through our submissions, and to everyone who has agreed to chair and respond at panels.
See you in San Antonio!
