Call for Participation


Southern States Communication Association

77th Annual Convention

March 29 to April 1, 2007

Marriott Louisville Downtown Hotel

Louisville, Kentucky

Relationships and Communities in the Digital Age

Our personal relationships, universities, politics, leisure activities and professional associations are being transformed by new communication technologies. People in workplaces and communities the world over are seeking sound advice to help them use these new technologies to enhance their communication.
The Vice President is especially interested in papers and programs that explore topics related to the conference theme.  Divisions and interest groups are encouraged to develop one panel consistent with this theme.  Co-sponsored panels are also welcome. 
In addition to traditional panels of papers, the Vice President is interested in workshops and interactive programs that maximize engagement.  
Program proposals that do not fit within SSCA's divisional and interest group structure may be submitted directly to the Vice President for consideration as part of the Vice President's Spotlight Series. 
The complete call for papers will be posted on SSCA's website at and appear in the summer issue of SSCA's newsletter, Connections.  All program proposals and papers are due to the appropriate Division or Interest Group Vice Chair (or, to the Vice President under the paragraph above) by September 15, 2006. 
As you plan your submissions, please limit your requests for audiovisual equipment, which is difficult to transport and prohibitively expensive to rent.

See you in Louisville in 2007!
