Two items in this post:
1) Extension of panel proposals for the 2013 AEJMC Viscom Division to midnight of Oct. 24, 2012, Eastern Time.
Please send your proposal through
If you already submitted your proposal and want to revise it, please submit the revised one after adding “(revision)” at the end of the title.

The original call, including proposals that were accepted last time, can be found at

2) Collective intelligence:
What would you do if you need to locate a guest speaker for your class, an expert for a panel, or a collaborator for your professional or research project?

Using a database I am planning to construct must be one excellent way you can solve the problem.

The database describes
* current and past professional and scholarly activities of visual scholars and professionals,
* their skills, talents and expertise,
* whether they are available to you and the public as a guest speaker, information source, reviewer, contributor, or consultant, and
* their contact number.

Only when you supply information on you, you can access this database.

I strongly recommend you take time to fill out the form.

Also ask your friends, colleagues or others who are interested in visual journalism to fill out the form.

Vice-head of AEJMC Viscom Division
