My Special Issue on Videoconferencing in Practice: 21st Century Challenges was published today in The Electronic Journal of Communication / La Revue Electronic de Communication (EJC/REC) 23 (1&2).

If your university does not subscribe to EJC/REC please email myself or article authors for article copies (and ask your library to subscribe!).

The issue features a keynote article by veteran media space researcher Professor Steven Harrison (Virginia Tech), a book review of the mixed French/English videoconferencing research book Décrire la conversation en ligne: Le face-à-face distanciel, and six research articles (including one of mine).
