It is our pleasure to present this year's edition of the Proceedings of the Technology and Emerging Media (TEM) interest group of the Canadian Communication Association (CCA). This edited collection of short papers offers an overview of research and scholarship presented during the 2015 annual conference of the CCA held in Ottawa, at the University of Ottawa, June 3-5. All papers selected for inclusion in these proceedings went through a double blind peer-review process.
This fourth edition of the TEM proceedings includes eight papers representing a vast range of research topics in the area of technology and emerging media, from the relation between “old media” and “new media,” to smart cities and digital access for seniors. In line with previous editions, the high quality of these contributions stands out and they will now hopefully gain more visibility by being available through the CCA website.
We wish to thank all the participants who contributed to the TEM interest group in Ottawa, the scientific committee that helped review the papers through all stages of the process, TEM co-chairs Philippe Ross and Lorna Heaton for overseeing the process, and especially the authors who were particularly diligent in their responses to the reviews. Finally, we would like to thank Olivier Gadeau and Ghislain Thibault for carrying out the migration and publication of the Proceedings.
