Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap 

7 - 8 February 2019

Abstracts, panel and pre-conference submissions

Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap 2019 welcomes proposals on a wide scope of topics that aim to discuss and reflect on state of the art communication science research and its possible intersections with AI, and this in terms of theoretical concepts, applied methodology and empirical findings. The deadline for abstract submission is Sunday, 4 November 2018, 23:59. Abstracts can be submitted via EasyChair.

Abstracts, either on the conference theme of “Communication Science and Artificial Intelligence” or on other issues in media and communication sciences should be:

  • 750 words, references excluded
  • Written in Dutch or English
  • Clearly present topic, theoretical framework, method, data, results, and conclusion

Indicate – at the beginning of your abstract – a division in which it should be considered (see NefCa for a description of each division):

  • Health Communication
  • Journalism
  • Media Psychology
  • Media Industries and Policies
  • Organizational Communication
  • Persuasive Communication
  • Political Communication
  • Popular Communication
  • Intercultural Communication and Diversity (Temporary Working Group)
  • Science Communication (Temporary Working Group)

This year, the Etmaal will only accept a maximum of one submission as the first author (with no limitation regarding submissions as co-author) to guarantee a diversity of speakers and equal chances for all to attend the conference.


  • Panels and pre-conferences

If you would like to propose a panel within the conference theme “Communication Science and Artificial Intelligence”, please send a general outline (500 words) and explain the specific topics that will be addressed in the panel (300 words/participant) to etmaal2019cw@ru.nl by Sunday, 4 November 2018, 23u59.

It is also possible to propose a pre-conference. To that end, please send a proposal (approx. 500 words) outlining the preconference topic to etmaal2019cw@ru.nl by Sunday, 4 November 2018, 23u59. Pre-conference submissions will be reviewed by the organizing committee. The conference rooms are available for free (incl. coffee and tea) on 7 February from 9-11h.

  • Notification of acceptance

Notifications of acceptance of abstracts, panels and pre-conferences will be communicated mid December 2018.

  • Special issue Tijdschrift voor Communicatiewetenschap

For the conference, we ask you to submit a 750-word abstract. Full papers are thus NOT required, and only the 750-word abstract will be subjected to peer review to decide upon acceptance for the conference. However, a special issue of Tijdschrift voor Communicatiewetenschap will be devoted to the outstanding work that is presented at the 2019 Etmaal conference. If you wish to contribute to the special issue, full papers (written in Dutch) should be directly sent to Tijdschrift voor Communicatiewetenschap (tvc@uva.nl). Deadline for submission will be announced.
