Only those who submit both the proposal and the supplementary information form will be considered for inclusion for the Internet Culture area.


While we recognize that many areas of the PCA/ACA conference deal with issues related to the Internet and Internet culture, the goals of the Internet Culture area are (1) to explore aspects of popular culture that are inherently tied to the Internet, new media communications, emerging technologies, social media, and related areas and (2) to create an interactive environment by embracing the changing nature of conference interactivity to include social media.


The deadline for submission is October 1st, 2018.
