ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

In a world ever anchored in constant flux and relentless evolution, the role of communication and media stands as both the mirror and the compass of societal progression. The ‘Communication and Media Pause: Reflecting Values and Impacts’ theme of COMETIC 24’ echoes a clarion call to pause amidst the tumultuous seas of chaos, crises, disruptions, and the labyrinthine challenges of the postmodern era 

This pivotal conference underscores the imperative need for a collective breath—a pause—in the whirlwind of information dissemination. It beckons professionals, scholars, and innovators in the communication and media sphere to contemplate, introspect, and recalibrate. Now, more than ever, is the moment to introspectively navigate the waves of change, to re-evaluate practices, and to reconstruct goals that align with values and sustainably impact our global community. As the digital age catapults us into an era of instantaneous connectivity, it becomes crucial to deliberate on the essence of communication and media’s role in shaping narratives, perceptions, and societal paradigms. 

The theme invites discourse on recalibrating ethical standards, navigating misinformation, embracing diversity, and leveraging technology responsibly. Ultimately, this theme challenges us to realign with core values, reassess impacts, and collectively propel these indispensable platforms towards an era of conscientious and impactful communication strategies.
