Mobiles Galore!

There are a lot of mobile communication opportunities right now.

First, the new SAGE journal Mobile Media & Communication is launching in January and is currently accepting submissions.

My favorite conference every year is the mobile preconference at ICA. The mobile comm community is full of great people and for me, at least, it feels the most like home in terms of academic subdisciplines. ICA 2013 is in London, which makes it even more exciting. The preconference call for papers is up. Abstracts are due on November 16. (Most ICA submissions are full papers, so an abstract-only is a nice incentive!)

Another conference that popped up this week is the Mobile Telephony in the Developing World conference in Finland. This too requires an abstract, by November 30.

I’m teaching both an undergraduate and a graduate mobile comm course this quarter, so I feel like I am surrounded by mobiles right now!
