In November 2017, the Universities of Neuchâtel, Zurich and Bern in Switzerland will host the first international conference to focus specifically on visual communication in/about new media. The conference is part of the SNF-funded project "What's up Switzerland?".


We are delighted to announce that the following prominent scholars have agreed to make keynote presentations. Each of these people is an established expert in the broadly conceived field of “digital discourse” studies, all of whom deal with the ways digital communication functions as a multimodal phenomenon.
