Intercom 2013: A Round Up

Nous voulons remercier tous qui sont venues et qui ont participé dans notre colloque annuel, Intercom 2013. Nous voulons remercier Dr. Andacht et Dr. McCurdy en particulier pour leur support à chaque étape du processus.
Nous sommes toujours étonnés par la varieté de la recherche dans le domaine de la communication, particulièrement parmi nos collègues ici à l’Université d’ Ottawa.

Si vous avez manqué le colloque, svp voir les photos ci-dessous. Nous voulons remercier Carly Dybka pour sa présentation « The social function of EWT sites in enabling neophatic communication » -malheureusement nous avons pas réussit à prendre des photos durant sa présentation.

*******************

We would like to thank all who attended and participated in our annual Intercom 2013 conference, particularly Dr. Andacht and Dr. McCurdy, who not only attended the event but supported this initiative at every stage.

We are always amazed by the  breadth and variety of research in the communication field, especially amongst our colleagues and peers here at UOttawa.

In case you missed it, there are some photos below.  Unfortunately, we had some trouble with the camera during her presentation, but we would also like to thank Carly Dybka for her presentation on “The social function of EWT sites in enabling neo-phatic communication”.

See you next year at Intercom 2014!
