Last week (20-22 May) at National Research Tomsk State University (TSU) was held a webinar organized as part of the International Research and Practical Web-Conference ‘Connect-Universum-2014’ by the Department of Social Communication of the Faculty of Psychology with the assistance of the Research Centre for Policy Analysis and Studies of Technologies (PAST), TSU and the financial support of Open Society Foundations.

The theme of the conference — ‘Visual Communications in New Media: Effects, Opportunities, Risks (Interdisciplinary Approach)’ – attracted the attention of around seventy scientists, researchers, and practitioners from different countries all over the world. 37 key speakers presented their reports at the plenary session of the conference which was held in live webinar mode. 170 participants were registered and took part in the webinar within the three days. The reports presented by all the participants are posted in the website of the conference http://connect-universum.tsu.ru.

Professor Irina Kuzheleva-Sagan, the Head of the Conference Steering Committee, expresses her opinion about the webinar: “We are sure that ‘Connect-Universum’ has a future as a communicative platform. It is connected with new network interdisciplinary project groups and “invisible colleges” that have appeared at the platform and are pursuing topical issues of social communications and new media in modern networking information-communication society. The reports presented by researchers and practitioners from 10(!) countries of the world are its plain evidence”.

The Steering Committee is planning on publishing the proceedings based on the results of the conference in both Russian and English with the possibility to be included into the global abstract and citation database Scopus.

Connect – Universum – 2014: Second Day

News
What connects the human body and the media? What is meant by such terms as «prosumer» and «Identity»? How dangerous is «filter bubble»? The participants of the second day of the international conference «Connect-Universum 2014» learned the answers to these questions, as well as other useful information.

Experts from eight different countries — China, Canada, Bulgaria, the USA, Sweden, the Netherlands, Ukraine and Russia — shared the results of their scientific and practical activities. All the reports were accompanied with interesting presentations and videos that were broadcast online. All the participants were able to establish connection with the Tomsk State University and perform at the conference, despite the considerable territorial remoteness and different time zones.

The first speaker, Katherine Ma, gave presentation on visual communication at the University of Hong Kong, and then showed some interesting videos.
