The NordMedia conference

Every two years, Nordicom co-organises the media research conference NordMedia together with the national research associations in the Nordic countries. NordMedia has been organised since 1973, and the five Nordic countries alternate hosting, so each country hosts the conference every ten years.
The conference contains plenary sessions, but the majority of the time is devoted to working in various divisions and working groups. The conference language is English.
