9th European Conference on Social Media
12 - 13 May 2022, a Pedagogical University of Krakow, Poland

ACI is taking a hybrid approach towards conferences this year. We are planning to run our series of conferences as physical events with the option for participants to join virtually. If, when it draws close to the time  of the event we are unable to meet in person due to COVID-19 restrictions the conference will move fully into the virtual format. We urge you to continue to submit your abstracts and papers in line with the published dates (extensions will be granted on request).
