Our lab director, Dr. Noshir Contractor, delivered a keynote speech at the 2020 ICA-affiliated New Media International (Virtual) Conference in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). The virtual conference featured past and present presidents of ICA — including Claes de Vreese, Terry Flew, Peng Hwa Ang, and Patrice Buzzanell — and attracted 506 participants, including faculties and students at SJTU. The conference centers around Intelligent Communication and Social Concerns and Dr. Noshir Contractor presented his research on “Teaming in the Time of Covid-19.” This conference is the first official event Dr. Contractor took part in as part of the ICA leadership team.
