CONCEPT NOTE

In today's age of digital communication, media technologies have become nearly a part of everyday human life. Mediating technology continues to shape humanity as a whole. Consequently, technology professionals play a critical role in transforming the way we live and even what it means to be human through the products they create. This has the potential to provide numerous benefits, but it also necessitates ethical considerations to ensure that we establish a welfare society.

Media Technologies refer to creating multiple innovative platforms to provide efficiencies to services delivered in the media sector. 'Media' in its broadest sense covers a wide range of sub-sectors, including Print Media, Broadcast Media, Digital Media, Social Media, Advertising, and Corporate Communications. The 'technology' platforms are developed to improve the efficiency of services delivered within each media sub-sector. Technology businesses have radically altered society, and not all of these developments have been positive or beneficial for all. Multiple crises are currently afflicting the world, including democracy disintegration, inequality, and health pandemics. This is not by chance; humans created the structures that allow for such crises. Thus, rather than dreaming of a brighter future, we must take progressive steps to make it a reality.

Such issues must be addressed and resolved urgently. Our goal is to inspire action and encourage high-impact and scalable solutions to specific media technology contexts. These efforts should improve media technologies' capability and make them more effective. Media Meet 2022 aims to bring together stakeholders from the media industry and academia to understand the implications better and develop solutions and ways to make the media industries more resilient.

While technology has impacted all aspects of our lives, whether it’s at work or home, the theme of the Media Meet 2022 revolves around ‘Media Technologies.’ Considering the broad nature of technology and the continuous stream of updates, mediating technology continues to shape our daily lives in countless ways. It is essential to find appropriate theoretical frameworks and practical strategies to study them. Media Meet 2022 seeks to publish original manuscripts that address open innovation, adoption, and challenges relating to media technologies. In doing so, the conference aims to explore some of the sub-themes by bringing academicians, scholars, practitioners, industry experts, and members from other backgrounds whose lives and works are at the interface of media technology.
