Revisit: Research Days on Marcom


6th International Research Days on Marketing Communications, Nancy, France, 29-30 Mar 2012, Chairs Bj?rn Walliser and David M. Woisetschl?ger; Deadline Oct 31

Since its first edition in 2004, the International Research Days on Marketing Communications traditionally have a strong focus on sponsorship-linked marketing, but are open to any other form of ?below the line? communications. Contributions should focus on non-traditional marketing communications such as sponsorship, patronage, event communication, social media, brand community management, lobbying, product placement, buzz marketing, online communications, public relations, etc. or on the link/integration between ?below the line? instruments and advertising. They may concern any stage of the communication process: objectives, budgeting, planning, strategy, execution, control, etc.
Contributions such as experiments, field studies, case studies and state-of-the-art reviews are welcome. The conference is known for its friendly, international atmosphere and its small size (usually not more than 50 researchers) which favour in-depth discussions. It includes two plenary sessions, a round table, and never foresees more than two sessions in parallel.
