This convention is aimed at presenting a state-of-the-art survey of what the
field has accomplished so far and where it is heading. In particular, papers,
posters and panels are welcomed that present new research on business

to education and practice, i.e. how business communication teachers and
professionals draw on research findings in going about their daily activities in
Contributions are welcomed on a wide spectrum of business settings, including
leadership and management situations, on gatekeeping encounters in a variety of
institutions and organizations and through a range of media and cultures, on
oral interaction in the workplace, on marketing and PR discourse, on on-line
communication, on management, organizational and corporate communication, on
global aspects of integrated marketing communications, etc.
Methodologically, the convention is open to wide-ranging efforts, including work
