ACCESSIBLE TEXT VERSION
IPR is hosting its 6th annual IPR Bridge Public Relations and Communication Conference, a two-day conference geared toward both public relations practitioners and academics.
The IPR Bridge allows academics to learn from senior-level executives, while having an opportunity to present their research at a peer-reviewed conference. Mid-to-senior-level executives can share their experiences with academics and learn about the latest in public relations and communications research.
A key feature of this conference is the opportunity to network and interact with top leaders in both the practice and the academy in a small setting (max of 125 attendees). The conference includes keynote sessions, ARC Talks, Brain Breaks, panel discussions, research sprints, breakfast, lunches, and breaks with refreshments, and a networking social.
Types of Sessions:
ARC TALK: An ARC Talk (Action > Research > Conversation) is an interactive presentation featuring high-level research, a brief case study, and discussion. ARC Talks allow communicators to explore how research expands beyond the findings into practical application.
RESEARCH SPRINT: A 20-minute, research-based presentation that highlights the high-level key findings from a research study (as well as appropriate lit review/theory, methodology) and its impact on the profession. Research Sprints empower communicators to apply research findings to their work in meaningful ways.
EXPERT PRESENTATIONS: A TED-style talk format that focuses on a specific and timely area of the industry. Research should be the basis of the expert presentation and include the “so what” for attendees at the conference.
PANEL DISCUSSIONS: Panel discussions may feature both practitioners and academics to address the most critically important research and industry-focused topics that matter to the profession. Panel discussions should not include more than three panelists and a moderator.
IPR welcomes submissions that fall into the four conference categories: ARC Talks, Research Sprints, Expert Presentations, and Panel Discussions.
