We seek papers on immersive technology, including but not limited to research focusing on areas such as arts, advertising and public relations, computer/information science, digital humanities, film, interactive documentary (i-doc), practice based research (PBR), news, and sports. 

Political Communication Mini Symposium. The theme of the Mini-Symposium mirrors the topic of the national BEA Symposium in April 2020.
