We welcome you to join us for our Sixth International Communication and Media Conference (i-COME'18). The conference provides a broad platform for the discussion of emergent and interconnected issues shaped by the meaning of communication, cultural, images and identity as understood in the South East Asian region as well as in other parts of the world. The 2018 conference theme "Connecting Diverse Networks: Managing Self and Others" is aimed to advance scholarship in the field of communication and media which can then be of benefit to communities who are experiencing diversity and managing challenging issues in the fields.
With the advancement of knowledge and technology, people are constantly searching for ways to manage themselves in finding points of agreement in personal and business matters. Industrial Revolution 4.0 is part of the upcoming revolution that may change how people work, play and manage themselves. Public and private institutions are faced with various issues that are new and need to find the best strategies in managing the stakeholders. All parties -- community, industry, institutions and governments need to work together in connecting these diverse networks and prepare for future challenges. It is time for local and global networks to understand and appreciate each other as we live in this one big space we call home.
We invite papers from everyone in the academic and industrial sectors to discuss crucial concerns (and potential solutions) in relation to the above-mentioned theme from various communication perspectives. A call for papers will be posted on the i-COME'18 website on February 1, 2018. The deadline for submission is May 31, 2018.
