OPEN CALL: Radio Content in the Digital Age

Feb 28, 2009 6:54 pm
The Cyprus University of Technology and the ECREA Radio Research Section invite the submission of abstracts for their forthcoming conference, "Radio Content in the Digital Age" in Limassol, Cyprus, October 14-16. Over the past decade, developments in technology have dramatically broadened the range of options for programming audio. The revolution began in the mid-1990s with a newfound ability to listen to audio being streamed over the Internet. Since then, digital radio has continued to expand with the advent of podcasting, offering radio programming on demand, and the rollout of different digital transmission systems, which provide superior sound quality and additional stations on and outside the traditional FM and AM wavebands. What are the main characteristics of today's radio content? How does radio programming differ around Europe and in other countries? How is radio content, both programming and genre, changing through new and emerging technology? Deadlines:
Abstract submissions: 31 March 2009
Final answers: 15 May 2009
