ECREA 2024, Communication & social (dis)order

September 24 @ 8:00 am - September 27 @ 5:00 pm

The 10th ECREA ECC will be organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana (UL FDV) and the Slovene Communication Association, from 23 to 27 September 2024 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, under the title ‘Communication & social (dis)order‘. The organizers of the 10th European Communication Conference invite submission of proposals for up to 10 pre-conferences. The organisers call for proposals that contribute to rethinking communication and social (dis)order from the different perspectives of ECREA sections, networks and working groups. Proposals for individual papers, panels and roundtables can be submitted to all ECREA sections, temporary working groups and networks via the ECREA ECC 2024 submission platform until 11 January 2024. The conference will support independent pre-conferences. The call for pre-conferences has now been published. Information on the individual calls and submission deadlines can be found on the conference website. Pre-conferences are independent events, separate from the main conference in terms of programming, budget, event management and administration. The pre-conference organisers define the specific thematic focus of the event and have full autonomy in deciding the format of the pre-conference including its design, length, scheduling, innovations in presentation formats and levels of interactivity. The pre-conferences organisers are also in charge of the peer-review process, which is separate from the review process of the main conference. The European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA), the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana (UL FDV), and the Slovene Communication Association will host the 10th European Communication Conference (ECC) in Ljubljana (Slovenia) from 23 to 27 September 2024. The organizers call for proposals that contribute to reconsidering communication and social (dis)order from various perspectives represented by ECREA Sections, Networks, and Temporary Working Groups. The ECC 2024 conference invites participants to reconsider the communication (dis)order by reflecting upon ongoing political, economic, environmental, health, and technological disruptions, their (dys)functional (un)predictability, and their long-term societal implications. While the speed and scope of contemporary communicative developments and social disruptions can easily generate an impression of unprecedented changes, felt either as a breakdown of the “old” order or the creation of a “new” one, this sensation is by no means exclusive to the present moment. Proposals for individual papers, panels, and roundtables can be submitted to one of ECREA Sections, Temporary Working Groups, and Networks through the ECC 2024 submission platform until 11 January 2024. All proposals should be written in English. Abstracts for individual papers (400–500 words, including references) should succinctly convey the study’s primary research problem, methodology, key findings, and their implications. Individual papers should align with and support the conference theme. Panel proposals should comprise five individual contributions, consisting of a panel rationale along with five panel paper abstracts. The panel rationale (400–500 words, including references) should elucidate the theme and its relevance within the broader conference context. Each panel paper abstract (400–500 words, including references) should further elaborate on specific research topics, main objectives, methodology, and findings, ensuring alignment with and support for the panel rationale. Roundtables should involve no more than five initial participants and are designed to foster discussion and interaction among delegates on a specific topic. Roundtable submissions (500–600 words, including references) should provide details about the discussion topic and its relevance, including the names of the organizers and initial participants. The availability of these participants must be confirmed at the time of proposal submission. Each participant may only be nominated as the first (presenting) author in one accepted submission. However, there are no restrictions on the number of presentations where a conference participant is listed as a co-author. Additionally, participants are welcome to serve as chairs, respondents for panels, or participants in roundtable discussions. If you are interested in organising a pre-conference, you can send the inquiries to The proposal for pre-conference (300-500 words) should include:
    • Short pre-conference rationale (theme and title),
    • brief presentation of the pre-conference organisers,
    • institutional links to ECREA (e.g. if the pre-conference is organised or endorsed by one of ECREA Temporary Working Groups, Networks or Sections),
    • general format (full-day or half-day event),
    • expected number of participants and budget (please note that participation fees for ECREA members should be lower than fees for non-members),
    • date and location (if already available).
The proposal should be sent to ( by 30 November 2023. The local organising committee will evaluate the proposals and select up to five pre-conferences. Priority will be given to groups and topics which have lower visibility in the scientific conference of the main conference (e.g. Temporary Working Groups). The deadline for submissions is 30 November 2023. The proposals will be evaluated by 20 December 2023. Upon selection, pre-conferences will be promoted via ECC2024 website and communication channels as well as ECREA website and communication channels.
