National Communication Research Conference 2017

November 09, 2017

The National Communication Research Conference (NCRC) is a platform for students, faculty members, and professionals to present and discuss their research papers before a community of scholars.

The NCRC was first organized by the University of the Philippines Department of Communication Research in 2012, the NCRC is the geographic expansion of the Communication Research Student Conference which the department began in 2008. Last year, the department and the Philippine Communication Society (PCS) hosted the first Communication Research International Conference, attended by over a thousand local and foreign delegates.

This year, the NCRC will be held in Baguio City in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of the Cordilleras, marking the first time that the annual conference series is leaving the UP Diliman Campus. This move increases the possibilities for inter-regional interaction and scholarly collaboration.

In this regard, we would like to invite your faculty members teaching research and those who are interested to attend and participate in this rare opportunity. For UC employees, registration is free.

Please see the attached topics and schedule. Please confirm the names and number of participants from your college or office on or before November 13, 2017 through local 146 and look for Ms. Agnes Segundo, CAS Secretary.
