A note from the ICORIA 2021 conference chair

Considering the pandemic situation in Europe, the EAA board together with the conference organizer have decided that ICORIA 2021 will move to an online format. We are very sad that we cannot meet in Bordeaux this year, but we believe that this is the safest option for all of us. Moving to an online conference allows us to extend the submission deadline to April 15, 2021.

This year’s conference theme “Authenticity, Narratives and History” is a reflection about Bordeaux as a city, but also about what a brand is able to convey and what consumers are expecting. Research around these key words is still ongoing, and there is still lots to investigate.

The main conference will be preceded by the 7th doctoral colloquium on June 23. The colloquium aims to help PhD students develop the professional skills required for their academic career. The doctoral colloquium will be followed by a reception late in the afternoon to welcome all conference delegates.

One of our keynote speakers, Nelly Chatue-Diop is a tech entrepreneur and former Chief Data Officer of Betclic. She can be defined as a data strategist, a pricing expert, a passionate about Africa tech and a blockchain enthusiast. She will tackle artificial intelligence and diversity.

For regular announcements and news updates, please follow us on Instagram (icoria_2021) or Facebook (Icoria_2021). The call for papers can be found on the EAA-website

Journal of Advertising, Special Issue dedicated to Reimagining Advertising Research: 50 Years and Beyond
This special issue is aimed at looking to the future and proposing new theories and/or new aspects of advertising practice that may be fruitful in studying and explaining advertising in the years ahead. Papers should be forward-looking and consider what will likely be important for advertising research and theory in our changing society and advertising practices.
Work is strongly encouraged that makes new (or renewed) connections to the disciplines that are not well represented or not being applied to their maximum potential in the extant advertising research and theory. Of course, all papers should be relevant to the broad global readership of the Journal of Advertising. Here, advertising is defined broadly, as reflected in the recent Journal of Advertising Special Issue on The Future of Advertising (Journal of Advertising, Volume 45 Issue 3). The hope is that the papers in this issue will help spur thinking in new directions that can expand our understanding and conceptualization of advertising knowledge. Thus, papers on all research topics related to all types of advertising are welcome. Both conceptual and empirical work that presents ground-breaking original ideas and new research directions is welcome.
Guest editors: Drs. Jisu Huh and Ron Faber at
Submission deadline: December 1, 2021
