The New Jersey Communication Association invites complete papers, media presentations, panel proposals, and poster sessions from students, scholars, faculty, and practitioners for this year's conference. The theme of the conference is "Restoring Credibility in Communication and Media." The NJCA annual conference provides teachers, scholars, students, administrators, and communication professionals a forum to exchange ideas, information and research. Submissions may include extended abstracts or works in progress, full-length papers of 25 pages or less, panels, workshop ideas or other collaborative opportunities. We strongly encourage the participation and contribution of students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. An award for the best student paper at each level will be presented at the conference. A student poster session will also be a part of this year's conference. Submissions for a poster should include a 150-word abstract. Students should be able to construct their posters out of 3-sided, free-standing boards for display.

*Please include the following information in your e-mail and on the front page of your submission: name(s) of presenters, title of paper/panel, poster, abstract, 3-5 keywords/phrases, student status if relevant (graduate or undergraduate), school affiliation and department, address, phone number and email. In addition, a statement of professional responsibility should be included on the cover or title page and should state the following: "In submitting the attached panel/paper proposal, I/we agree to present at the 2016 NJCA conference if it is accepted. I/we further recognize that all who attend and present at NJCA must register and pay the required fees."

Submissions must be sent by February 15, 2016 to Professor Bob Mann (1st Vice President of the NJCA) at rmann@Caldwell.edu
