Esra Ercan Bilgiç and Bilgimedya’s IP Partners Co-Presented at the ICCMTD

ICCMTD – The International Conference on Communication, Media, Technology and Design was held in Istanbul between 9-11 May 2012. Esra Ercan Bilgiç participated to the conference together with Bilgimedya’s IP partners, with their joint paper titled “From Convergence to Connectivism: Teaching Journalism 2.0”. Raoul Boers from Amsterdam University of Applied Science, Lars Rinsdorf from Stuttgart Media University and Robert W. Vaagan from Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Science are the other three co-authors of the article. The paper describes the main drivers of change in the news industry, discusses consequences for journalism and teaching, and offers an innovative didactical approach, which combines an interdisciplinary perspective with the concept of connectivism. The consequences of convergence that affect journalism education are inspected under three sub-topics: the changes in the curricula, the changes in the courses syllabi, and the changes in the technological infrastructures of the academic institutions. It is pointed out, that recognizing connections and patterns to develop novel ideas and concepts is the core skill for individuals today. The paper shows, how that approach could be realized in an international 10-day-intensive program. The intensive program that is expected to be funded by the Lifelong Learning Program of the EU will take place in Amsterdam in February 2013. Besides, the joint article is going to be published in the forthcoming October 2012 issue of the OJCMT  – Online Journal of Communication and Media Technologies.

Call for Papers for Special Section in Public Relations Inquiry

Public Relations as an institutional process

The relations between organizations and society are at the heart of public relations. Therefore, an appreciation of structural conditions is central to the analysis of public relations practice, and explanations for its existence. Yet insights into institutional conditions are rarely incor­porated into the study of public relations, leaving the field both theoretically and empirically under-developed.

This Special Section aims to enrich public relations theory by harnessing recent devel­opments in neo-institutional theory. We invite original papers resting on empirical analysis dealing with, or relating to, one of the following streams:

-How does (or has) the practice of public relations spread across different types of organizations and organizational fields; and how does it operate as an institutional practice? (DiMaggio & Powell 1991; Scott 2008)

-How is public relations involved in the diffusion and implementation of other insti­tutional forms into organizational behaviour? (Czarniawska & Sevón 1996, 2005)

Submissions should be uploaded on the website and clearly identified as ’Special Section: public relations as an institutional process’ by 1 October 2012. The Special Section will be published in volume 2(3) 2013.-How is public relations involved in institutional change – how do institutional norms, rules and ideas emerge, change and die? (Lawrence et al 2009; Thornton et al. 2012)

Call For Chapter Proposals: Research and Design Innovations for Mobile User Experience

Mobile user experience (UX) has gained momentum as a significant area of research in recent years. The emergences of mobile human-computer interaction (HCI) as a separate, unique field in HCI discipline with diverse academic activities and body of literature supports this idea. Although mobile devices allow users to stay connected anytime anywhere, diverse user groups still suffer from usability issues caused by the design of mobile interfaces and the limitations of mobile devices. Although the mobile HCI community is trying to create and adapt research methods, tools, and infrastructure for mobile-specific challenges and opportunities, there is still a limited number of studies on mobile UX, which addresses both researchers and professionals that work in the field of mobile HCI. Secondly, it is not so difficult to observe that the product managers in the sector of mobile communication often ignore usability issues and UX processes because of time and budget limitations. However, when it comes to delivering innovation on mobile devices, new philosophies, researches, and approaches should be taken into consideration.
Objective of the Book
This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area. By including cutting-edge empirical studies and live cases from the professional sector, it intends to prepare a reference book for the mobile human-computer interaction community that will reveal key mobile user experience issues with solid data and guidelines and will support innovative mobile UX design processes.

Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be professionals and researchers working in the field of mobile human computer interaction e.g mobile user experience and usability and mobile interface design. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support interaction/interface designers, developers, product managers, UX and usability experts, digital marketing experts and digital strategists concerned with digital product and service design.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Storytelling and gamification in mobile UX design
Trust, privacy, content protection, legal aspects & issues in mobile applications & services
Internationalization and localization in mobile UI
Licensing, IPR and legal issues in mobile development
Next generation mobile development environments
Mobile augmented reality systems
Customer loyalty, retention and satisfaction
Innovative design of mobile UI
Gender differences

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before May 30, 2012, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by June 15, 2012 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by September 30, 2012. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
