CCL at #ICA17 in San Diego II


We have presented our newest research in the ICA divisions of Computational Methods, Political Communication as well as Ethnicity and Race in Communication.

The Computational Communication Science-Lab was represented at International Communication Association's 67th Annual Conference in San Diego, CA with a total of five papers.

Furthermore, we are proud to announce Jakob-Moritz Eberl was awarded the "Top Student Paper Award" in the Political Communication Division for the fourth and final paper of his doctoral thesis.

We want to thank the organizers of #ICA17 for a well picked location and perfectly planned conference. We also thank the numerous anonymous reviewers who support #ICA17 and ensure the quality the papers presented.

Finally, we are already looking forward to #ICA18 in Prague!
