We are entering 2021 with moderate optimism due to the approval of vaccines but expect widespread travel to start normalising only in the second half of the year – too late for our conference scheduled for July 2 – 3, 2021. So, we have decided it would be safe for the 28th International Public Relations Research Symposium (BledCom)
to again be fully digital.
Given the disruption that a public health crisis has brought upon us, we chose the theme: Public Relations, Public Risk and Crisis Communication.
Please submit paper abstracts and panel proposals via email to
no later than February 1, 2021.
We have been planning how to provide as meaningful an experience as possible and shall continue to work on fine tuning it. At this point we can share with you that we plan to organise virtual classrooms for debates, as well as parallel sessions and plenary sessions organised to accommodate different time-zones.
The program will enable synchronous discussions between participants.
