Calls for papers, artist residencies, and INN 2023 Awards – Media Innovation Awards (only for Portuguese context) are open until December 20th in the scope of INN 2023 – I International Conference on Media Innovation, which will be held at the School of Social Sciences and Humanities at NOVA University of Lisbon between February 1st and 3rd, 2023.
Dedicated to the theme “(Per)forming Innovation”, the first edition of this annual conference aims to explore the concept of innovation from a conceptual and performative point of view in the media sector and also the innovative use of digital media in other contexts (such as artistic, cultural or creative). The programme includes a makeathon for PhD students and young researchers, workshops and master classes, theoretical discussions, debates with professionals, hybrid sessions, artist residencies, and the first edition of media innovation awards.
Regarding abstract proposals, contributions that focus on various dimensions of innovation in the media and other creative industries are encouraged. Concerning proposals for artist residencies, physical and virtual artistic experiences that concretize the “(Per)forming innovation” concept, capable of involving the public, are encouraged.
There are also two journals associated with the event for authors who wish to submit full papers after the conference: Media & Journalism journal will host a limited selection of the best papers subject to a prior peer review process; Journal of Communication and Languages will edit a thematic issue dedicated to media innovation in artistic and cultural contexts, to be published in 2024, with a selection of the best articles subject to a peer-review process. Both are indexed in Scopus.
