Conference & Publication Calls for Papers

Call For Papers
 

communication, information and internet policy

Deadline: March 31, 2011

Call for Papers

TPRC is an annual conference on communication, information and internet policy that convenes international and interdisciplinary researchers and policymakers from academia, industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. Its purpose is to present original research relevant to policy making, share the knowledge requirements of practitioners, and engage in discussion on current policy issues. The conference program consists of presentations selected from submitted paper abstracts, student papers and panel submissions.

TPRC is now soliciting abstracts of papers, panel proposals, and student papers for presentation at the 2011 conference, to be held September 23-25, 2011 at the George Mason University Law School, in Arlington, Virginia. These presentations should report current theoretical or empirical research relevant to communication and information policy, and may be from any disciplinary perspective – the sole criterion is research quality. Themes of particular interest include, but are not limited to:


Click on any the above topics for descriptions. To submit an abstract, please use the submit button at the top of a theme’s list of topics.

Papers not submitted in final form by the due date will be removed from the program. At least one author of the paper is expected to attend the conference to present the accepted submission.

Standards for Abstracts

Papers for the main program are selected on the basis of submitted abstracts. (However, student papers need to be submitted in their final form. Please see the student paper competition section for details.

The TPRC is a research conference that focuses on results and insight, not advocacy. Participants generally have substantial background knowledge about communications issues and come to the conference seeking new perspectives. To aid the Program Committee in selecting the most appropriate papers for presentation, abstracts should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Abstracts should be 400-600 words in length. Shorter abstracts are unlikely to provide sufficient detail to permit the Committee to evaluate adequately the proposed research.
  • The abstract should not be a detailed literature review. The reviewer will likely be familiar with the issue and will require at most a short paragraph of background.
  • The largest part of the abstract should describe the proposed research in as much detail as is necessary. This includes (a) a clear statement of the objective of the paper including, where appropriate, the insight developed or hypothesis being tested; (b) a description of the analytic method employed to develop the paper’s results or test its hypotheses; (c) a description of the data assembled to support these insights or perform these tests; (d) a short explanation as to why this research is novel. While the proposed research need not involve empirical methods, the conference is seeking scholarship that significantly advances the state of its field.
  • If the paper is already substantially complete, the abstract should summarize the results. Further, the author should state whether this paper has already been presented or published, and if so, where.
