Welcome all of you!

Warmest greetings!

On the behalf of the World Communication Association, I really welcome all of you and appreciate of your participations on the 2017 WCA conference, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, Aug. 2-6, 2017.

I inform you with great excitement that we received more than 170 papers (full papers and abstracts) with 42 academic divisions from 35 countries including Kyrgyzstan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Finland, U.S., China, Japan, Russia, etc.

The number of papers submitted is really amazing, never been expected before, and the number of countries of participants is also reflected symbolically by the whole of the world. Many crucial and controversial issues will be discussed through perspectives of 42 communication fields such as ‘Intercultural Communication’, ‘Cross-cultural Communication’, ‘Culture and Politics’, ‘Culture and Power’, ‘Culture and Discourse’, ‘Semiotics’, ‘PR’, ‘Advertising’, ‘Media Technology’, ‘Strategic Communication’, ‘Organizational Communication’, etc.

I am very sure that the whole of participants will join the 2017 WCA conference with great excitements and pleasures, and present and discuss many valuable subjects with audiences at various sessions including keynote speeches, plenary sessions, parallel sessions, NCA-WCA workshops, etc.

The main theme of the 2017 WCA conference is ‘world conflicts and disasters: communication, culture, and resolution’. The world is now suffering from very serious and severe conflicts and disasters such as ‘global warming’, ‘world-wide pollution’, ‘fine dust’, ‘natural disasters’, ‘territorial conflicts’, ‘racial conflicts’, ‘political conflicts’, ‘ideological conflicts’, etc.

Through the 2017 WCA conference, all of you are able to present your ideas and suggest proper ways of resolving such issues through powerful theories and perspectives from various communication studies.

The Headquarters of WCA and the Bishkek Local Committee for the 2017 WCA conference have prepared to provide high-advanced facilities for presentations and discussions and make each of session most comfortable atmosphere for making productive conversation. In addition, they will provide various cultural events to make the whole of participants to feel unique experiences as well as improve closer relations among them.

I hope that all of you will enjoy the 2017 WCA conference, and satisfy your desires and expectations for the conference, whatever you would desire and expect.

I am really looking forward to meeting you at Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on the beautiful August.

Best hopes,
