3rd Annual International Conference on Journalism and Mass Communications (JMComm) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The 3rd Annual Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Jour­nal­ism and Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (JMComm) 2014 is organ­ised by the Global Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Forum (GSTF) and will be held in Sin­ga­pore on Sep­tem­ber 22 – 23, 2014 at the Fort Can­ning Hotel, Sin­ga­pore.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    “At the Cross­roads of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Jour­nal­ism, Media, Cor­po­rate and Social Respon­si­bil­ity“

    The media indus­try, in many respects, is at a cross­roads as it seeks to come to terms with devel­op­ments in tech­nol­ogy that simul­ta­ne­ously allow new heights of jour­nal­is­tic excel­lence, as well as the emer­gence of more wor­ry­ing trends such as “fake” journalism.

    In this dig­i­tal age, com­mu­ni­ca­tion ethics — the codes, moral stan­dards and val­ues fol­lowed by media orga­ni­za­tions and in human com­mu­ni­ca­tion, are more sig­nif­i­cant than ever before. There­fore, we need to explore how media can be socially respon­si­ble and pro­vide true, accu­rate, com­pre­hen­sive and objec­tive infor­ma­tion, and try to resolve the con­flict between com­mu­ni­ca­tion free­dom, pub­lic inter­est and social impact.
