Looking for an excuse to head to Orlando in March? This may be it! A call for papers and abstracts, including a graduate student paper competition:

Call for Presentations
The call for presentations deadline for the seventh annual International Crisis & Risk Communication (ICRC) Conference is Monday, Dec. 5, 2016.

Join us March 13-15, 2017 at the University of Central Florida, Orlando as we explore crisis and risk communication focusing on the theme Bridging the Gaps: Strategic Communication and Mega Crises. The International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference annually seeks to bridge the gaps between the academy and industry, bringing together scholars and practitioners. Working together, best practices and approaches to strategically manage the increasingly complex risk and crisis challenges affecting communities and countries around the world are initiated. This year’s conference will focus social/cultural topics, science and environmental issues and health related matters.

ICRCC invites speaker submissions of case-study oriented presentations, with content to include firsthand experiential reports, original academic research and exploration, lessons learned and best-practice recommendations that bridge the gaps between scholars and practitioners to strategically manage today’s increasingly complex crises. If submitting a paper, it should focus on either crisis or risk and can be completed studies, case studies, or analyses of current policies/practices. Only full papers will be accepted, no abstracts.

Student Paper Competition

Students are also invited to participate in student paper competitions by Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016. Two top student paper awards will be granted. Recipients will receive a conference fee waiver, hotel accommodations during conference and formal acknowledgement at the conference.

Submissions may be emailed to icrc@ucf.edu along with a brief biography and a headshot.

More details are available on the ICRCC website at icrcconference.com. For further details, email icrc@ucf.edu or call Tommiea Jackson at +1 (407) 823-3390.
