Concept Note :

The convergence of the media which has blurred the line between traditional and new media is a key phenomenon in times of fast-growing technological advances. This process is driven by expansion of digital platforms, growth of social networks, integration of multimedia content, all contributing to a more interactive and immersive media environment. The "explosion" of information technology we have today can cause great transformations in human communication and the media maps (Bale et al., 2022). Therefore, there will be significant changes in the ways in which information is produced, distributed and consumed; for this reason it is essential to better understand their mechanisms and consequences. When Internet technology shifted from Web1.0 to Web3.0 Human Communication Era was replaced by static web pages, social media, blockchain (Lin et al., 2022); However with improvements made on virtual reality (VR) technologies and augmented reality (AR), a metaverse communication era was created. These technologies have not just transformed how content is generated, distributed and consumed but also changed the much larger media landscape allowing more customization, interaction as well as real time engagement.The interplay between media convergence and emerging technologies is thus pivotal in shaping the future of media, offering unprecedented opportunities for innovation and engagement while also posing challenges related to privacy, intellectual property, and digital divide.  

The conference will address the societal and cultural implications of emerging technologies. Discussions will explore how these advancements are influencing public discourse, shaping cultural identities, and affecting democratic processes.
