SONIC PhD student Marlon Twyman is a member of the conference’s planning committee. He will also present a paper “Networks of Computer-Mediated Team Assembly.” Aaron Schecter, a PhD candidate, is also presenting at this conference on “Bridging the Boundary While Minding the Seams: Team Boundary Propensities in Multiteam Systems.”

The purpose of the OCMC is to feature and support graduate students pursuing research about organizational communication. The two-day event provides burgeoning scholars in the field with the opportunity to present their dissertations or other research projects, receive feedback, and socialize with their peers and with established faculty. The informal atmosphere of the OCMC is also well suited for students who wish to present and receive constructive criticism on early dissertation plans.
