The next conference of the Radio Research Section of ECREA will be held at the Getafe campus of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain), from 28-30 October 2015. The theme is Radio: Diversity, Innovation & Policies. The challenges presented by the digitalization and convergence process have made the radio medium move into a new scenario in which it has been redefining its role. Such scenario raises important questions regarding its adaptability towards innovation, the public policies on digitalization and the reality of the radio medium diversity in its distinctive aspects.
In order to address such challenges the Radio Research International conference will allow us to further discuss these various topics through different plenary and parallel communication sessions with a total of 70 to 100 papers. Besides, we would like to take the opportunity to strengthen the relations between associations and researchers of Europe and Latin America, given the privileged position of Madrid as connection axis between both realities.
