Theme: Media Innovations and Good Lives
Dear list members, we are pleased to announce that the seventh International Symposium on Media Innovations (ISMI18) will take place in Oslo, Norway on Friday 31st August and Saturday 1st September, 2018.
Join us, along with a small group of international academic researchers and industry representatives, to discuss how innovations are developed in, influence, and transform contemporary media.  We will discuss innovation and change in media technologies and services, organisational structures and management, and policies.

The theme for ISMI18 is ‘Media Innovations and Good Lives’.  During our two-day event we will theorise media innovation and how this may relate, influence, and contribute to, living good lives in contemporary societies.
