“Communication and Education:
New Media, Knowledge Practices and Multiliteracies”
8 - 10. 12. 2014 at The University of Hong Kong


Second Stage Call for Participation

The Organizing Committee of HKAECT 2014 cordially invites you to participate at the next HKAECT Conference 2014 on “Communication and Education: New Media, Knowledge Practices and Multiliteracies”. New media appear both with multimedia presentation elements and interactive knowledge units which call for emergent knowledge practices. All these multifaceted ways of communication require the ability to understand multiliteracies in terms of culture, disciplines, media and technology. We are calling papers to discuss new media, emergent knowledge practices and multiliteracies in three main aspects: (1) Communication; (2) Education, and (3) Technology. The Conference will include keynote addresses, paper presentations, tutorials and workshops.

Call for presentations
We welcome theoretical papers, reviews, empirical research reports, case studies, best practices, demonstrations, solutions, and experience sharing. All submissions should be written in English, of a length within twelve A4 pages, including title, abstract, introduction, study method(s), results, discussion and references. Each submission will be peer-reviewed and acceptance will be based on the paper quality. All accepted submission will be published in the local Conference Proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their work at the Conference in English.

本研討會特設中文研究分享,並邀請各學人遞交文稿於研討會中以中文發表。文稿類別不限,可以是理論探討、文獻回顧、實證研究報告、個案研究、展示、經驗分享等等。稿件以中文撰寫, 最長不多於12頁(A4 尺寸),內容須包括題目、摘要、簡介、研究方法、結果、討論及參考文獻。文稿會用「同儕審查」的方式審議;經接納後,文稿將收錄於研討會香港論文集。有關學人將被邀請於研討會中發表。
