Time: August 7-10, 2023 (Eastern Time) AEJMC
The Korean American Communication Association (KACA) invites submissions of original research papers for the 2023 AEJMC-KACA competitive research session. We encourage submissions that advance theories and understanding of various aspects of media and communication relevant to Korean and/or other Asian contexts. The AEJMC-KACA session welcomes a variety of theoretical orientations and methodological approaches. Submissions from graduate students are highly recommended as student submissions are considered a separate category.
This year’s KACA-AEJMC session is sponsored by the Stan Richards School of Advertising & Public Relations at the University of Texas at Austin. More information regarding the KACA social and the mentoring session for graduate students at KACA will be announced in subsequent announcements.

- Extended abstracts should contain all of the same content sections and elements that would normally be used in the full paper, including the study’ purpose, literature review, research questions and/or hypotheses, method, expected findings and implications.

- For authors considering the extended abstract option, research findings and conclusions must be shared at the conference during the presentation.
A paper may NOT be under review: (1) simultaneously with more than one division within AEJMC, (2) simultaneously with the AEJMC conference and any other conference, (3) simultaneously with the AEJMC conference and any potential publication, including referred journals, book chapters etc.
