We are excited and pleased to announce that IR15: Boundaries and Intersections will be held in Daegu, Korea, from October 21-24. (Please note the slight date change: the conference will start one day earlier than originally planned.) Our local hosts will be Han Woo Park, Professor, Department of Media & Communication, YeungNam University, Korea; and Leslie Tkach-Kawasaki, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Japan. Prof. Park also hosts the DISC conference, taking place in Daegu this year in December (http://www.slideshare.net/hanpark/disc-2014-cfp-v3).
Daegu is easily accessible from Seoul via air, train, or bus. This vibrant city is home to IT industry (and is the birthplace of Samsung), as well as significant cultural attractions (including several UNESCO World Heritage Sites). Our venue will be the Beomeo Saint Western Hotel, a newly opened hotel in the Beomeo district. Lodging will also be available in nearby hotels.We will announce further details shortly and expect to reopen registration very soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult transition. We look forward to seeing you all in Korea in October!
