2020 Call for Papers Submission Deadline
December 3, 2019
BEA’s interest divisions invite scholarly papers from academics, students and professionals for presentation at the BEA2020 Annual Convention which will be held April 18 – 21, 2020 at the Las Vegas Westgate Resort. Awards are offered through each interest division.
The BEA2020 Convention Spotlight is….. Foresight is 20/20: Reimagining Media — The media landscape has been in flux for some time and for many practitioners and academics this flux has initiated curricular adjustments and industry changes. This year’s spotlight is intended to consider the ways educators and industry professionals navigate the contemporary media delivery ecosystem while anticipating trends, technology and changing business models.
Reimagining Media serves as the BEA2020 spotlight, but papers are not limited to this area of research. Papers should be submitted to the division that best fits that division’s goals and objectives. Each division selects up to four papers for BEA2020 presentation and additional papers may be selected for the Scholar-to-Scholar digital research (poster) session.
Categories & Competitions – Submit your research to the relevant BEA interest division as a “Debut” or an “Open” paper. “Debut” is open only to those who have never presented a paper at a BEA convention, and “Open” if you have previously presented a paper at BEA. To help defray costs, 1st and 2nd place “Debut” winners receive $200 and $100 respectively. Regardless of the number of authors, BEA will award one check to the individual who submitted the paper.
