Korean American Communication Association
Call for 2017 NCA Papers
The National Communication Association (NCA) will hold its 103rd Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas, on November 16-19, 2017. The Korean American Communication Association (KACA) invites individual papers for competitive research sessions.
We invite submissions of papers broadly related to all areas of Korean and/or Korean-American communication themes, including but not limited to intercultural/international communication; new technologies and social media influence on communities; and contemporary communication issues in health, science, environment, sports, or entertainment. The submission of papers pursuing the convention theme, “Our Legacy, Our Relevance” is encouraged. The KACA embraces all theoretical and methodological approaches to research.
We accept three types of submissions:
1. Full length completed research papers. No more than 25 double-spaced pages, excluding references, tables, and figures. Work already presented, published or accepted for presentation or publication should not be submitted. All papers must include a title and a 250-word abstract. Only full length completed papers are eligible for top research awards (a certificate and a small cash prize).
2. Extended abstracts (completed research/research in progress). 2-3 single-spaced pages, plus references. Abstracts should clearly state: Aims, research questions, methods, projected results, andkeywords (up to 6). If accepted, participants are expected to send the full paper to the session planner no later than 6 weeks before the convention.
3. Panel proposal. Panel proposals should include a title, a rationale (2-3 single-spaced pages), a description for the conference program (250 words), a list of names and institutions of panelists, and brief summary of each paper/presentation. Panels should avoid single institution representation.
All submissions will be blind reviewed by two or three referees/reviewers with expertise in the area. Submitters MUST DELETE ALL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION before submitting a paper, abstract, or panel proposals. AV requests must be made at the time of submission to be considered.
Please submit your work online using the NCA Submission Central. All submissions must be made by March 29 (Wednesday), 2017 at 11:59 PM Pacific.
Submitters do not need to be a member of the NCA or the KACA to submit a paper/abstract/proposal for the sessions. However, if accepted, at least one author will need to (1) register for the conference and (2) attend the conference to present the work (otherwise, the presentation will be removed from the program).
