Workshops

The Committee’s annual workshop takes place during the Spring and typically consists of five single-track sessions over a three-day period. The number of attendees is usually around 100. The majority of the talks are invited. The Workshop typically alternates between the East and the West Coasts of the USA, with several Workshops having taken place outside the USA since 1991.

Next Communication Theory Workshop
The 2018 Communication Theory Workshop will take place in Florida, USA, May 14-16, 2018.
