From the first up to the current international conference, we have always believed that communication is constantly transforming to keep up with the technology advances. As the nature of omni present that is inherent in communication, the transformation
in Communication Science is inevitable. Therefore, we bring the soul of the change into the third conference of International Conference of Transformation in Communication.
With the spirit of the positive change, the current International
conference will be held in Telkom University, Bandung Indonesia. With good expectation for a fruitful event, the Faculty of Communication and Business is cordially inviting scientists and researchers from all over the world and various disciplines
who are interested in developing the Communication Science to partipate in this event.
On the first day, we will invite all the conference participants to discuss various topics in the study of Communication Studies and to enjoy the beauty of Bandung on the next day. Both of these make the 3rd ICoTiC worth attending.
Collaboration with some domestic and foreign universities is another added value to this international conference. It is also supported by cooperations with international journals that will publish selected articles. Surely this event will
not be missed by all interested parties.
Finally, we are looking forward to having your arrival in Bandung. Wilujeng sumping in Bandung, hayu urang ngariung.
See you in Bandung.
Warmest regards, Conference committee of the 3rd ICoTiC
Representing Telkom University and other collaborated institutions, we proudly present the 2nd International Conference on Transformation in Communication (2nd ICoTiC).
After the first conference held in 2015 with the theme "Cultural Dialogue and Ethical Issues in Globalized World", the 2nd ICoTiC is re-organized with more challenging theme for academics and practitioners from various disciplines,
namely "Bridging Communication among Communities in The Globalized Interconnected Era".
This event will be a joint conference between School of Communication and Business of Telkom University and Asosiasi Pendidikan Tinggi Ilmu Komunikasi (ASPIKOM), and some universities: Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Universitas Udayana
(UNUD), Universitas Bina Nusantara (Binus University) and Universitas Islam Negeri Sunan Gunung Djati (UIN – SGD).
The 2nd ICoTiC will be held on 23-24 November 2016 at Novotel Hotel Bandung, West Java. The choosing of the city as the site of the conference is based on the fact that Bandung as the third largest city in Indonesia is known by its cozy
weather, friendly people, natural tourism objects (Tangkuban Perahu Mountain, Kawah Putih Volcanic Lake, Situ Patenggan Lake, etc) and cultural tourism objects as well (historical buildings such as Gedung Sate, Gedung Merdeka, Bosscha Observatories,
and Savoy Homann Hotel). Beyond that, Bandung is progressively evolving towards a modern city. By maximizing the function of the city parks, the more sophisticated infrastructures, and the use of the Internet for the benefit of public services,
Bandung is appropriately considered as a representation of the interconnected city. Apparently, Bandung, along with Buenos Aires, Curitiba, Dubai, Moscow, and Peterborough, was a finalist for the award Smart City Awards in 2015. Hence, it is
not an exaggeration to have Bandung as the venue of the 2nd ICoTiC.
Futhermore, through the 2nd ICoTiC, we are encouraging all academics and those who work in the field of communication sciences, economics and business, techno-culture, new media, journalism, public relations, marketing communication, politics,
and those who have an interest in arts, humanities, politics, and issues related to race, gender, and ethnicity, to acknowledge as well as to examine the times in which we live today, and become part of the solution to all the problems.
