Dear Colleagues,

Below you will find a call for papers for the International Advertising and Integrated Marketing Communications Conference (IAIMCC) to be held February 2rd-4th 2012 in Anaheim, California. This conference is co-sponsored by Maxwell Center for International Communications and Media at California State University and the Korean Advertising Society, the most reputed national association for advertising educators and professionals in Korea.

Although the IAIMCC 2012 is a small conference and the deadline is fast approaching, there are several good reasons for you to respond to this call for papers and submit your work to this conference.

  • You have the flexibility of submitting a complete manuscript or an extended abstract/proposal.
  • All papers or proposals that are accepted and presented at the conference will be included in the proceedings published by the Korean Advertising Society (KAS). Authors have the option of publishing either the full paper or an extended abstract.
  • All papers presented at the conference and competed by March 15th can be submitted to a double-blind review for publication in the Journal of Advertising and Promotion, published by KAS. A special issue is dedicated to this conference on International Advertising and Marketing Communication. Its publication date is August/September, 2012!
  • The IAIMCC 2012 is an ‘international’ conference that focuses on interaction, and registration includes a reception, continental breakfasts, lunches, and dinner on Saturday.
  • It will be held at the Disney Paradise Pier Hotel next to Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure and the Downtown Disney areas in Anaheim, California — a fun setting for a conference.
