MERCU BUANA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMMUNICATION SCIENCE (MICoCS)

Greetings from Jakarta!

Mercu Buana International Conference on Communication Science (MICoCS) is an academic event hosted by Postgraduate Program at the Faculty of Communication Science, Univesitas Mercu Buana, Jakarta, Indonesia. The conference will be held covering the main theme of Society Empowerment amidst the New Normal: Communication, Socio-Cultural, Political, Economic, and Technological Perspectives. The theme was constructed based on the current situation of Pandemic Covid-19 that has brought society in the whole world into a shifting of social communication and interactions as well as every aspect of the economy, politics, and healthcare industry.

The Pandemic has not been over yet. However, we have to manage to adapt to the changes that occurred and adopt the digital technology that could facilitate our activities. Thus, the advancement of technology has bridged all aspects of the communication activity during and in the post-pandemic era; education, healthcare, politics, and the economy are mediated and become a collection of contemporary issues that explores new areas, redefines former concepts, and proposes discourses over communication theories, and portrays a new scene upon the edge of the global crisis by Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, various topics and sub-topics are provided, and not limited to the list, to accommodate participants’ research of interest and ideas for both academic and practical purposes.

This conference will provide an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and research outcomes in theoretical and practices as well as social and industrial applications. The conference invites delegates from across Indonesia and neighboring countries with similar interests in research. The diverse interdisciplinary point of view will be shared and discussed thoroughly among scholars. The conference will be the source of valuable ideas and possible collaboration to encourage social empowerment during and post-pandemic era and to ensure the society is able to adapt to the New Normal by adopting digital technology as part of their communication tools.
