主題 : 智媒時代的現實探索與未來想像
全球的傳播圖景正因智能化技術的革命性發展而變得前所未有的多元多維。人 工智能、區塊鏈、5G 網絡等技術深刻地改造著媒介環境，解構並重構傳播力，進而改 變著媒介與信息、媒介與社會的關係。當智能媒介已然成為社會賴以生存和發展的基 礎性系統，且以全息、全程、全域為尺度擴展信息域，我們必須深入觀察並思考媒介 與傳播、社會、文化、政治經濟之間的複雜互動、背後的權力結構、以及所產生的外 部性效益，以此培育面向未來的智媒格局。
具體問題有:何種主體正推動智能媒介技 術的發展與應用?智能媒介塑造何種新場景與新關係?產生何種信息?催生何種傳播 現象?驅動媒介變革的深層觀念與利益因素為何?本屆研究生論壇從智媒時代的現實 探索與未來想像出發，深化我們對傳播社會新格局、新現象、新問題的再思考。

Academic Conference on Global Communication in the Age of Smart Media
Examining Reality and Imagining Future in the Era of Smart Media
The global communication landscape is becoming unprecedentedly diverse and multidimensional thanks to the revolutionary development of intelligence technology. Technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and 5G networks have profoundly transformed the media environment, deconstructed and reconstructed the power of communication, and thereby changed the media- information and media-society relationships.
Smart media have become a fundamental system for the survival and development of a society, and the information domain is expanded on the scale of holography, whole process, and global. We must observe and examine the complex interactions between media and communication, society, culture, and political economy, the power structure behind them, and their corresponding benefits, in order to cultivate a future-oriented structure for smart media.
Specific research questions include: What subjects are promoting the development and application of smart media technologies? What new scenes and new relationships are created by smart media? What kind of information is generated? What types of communication phenomena are incubated? What are the underlying concepts and interests that drive the transition of media? Starting from the examining the reality and imagining the future in the era of smart media, this postgraduate forum aims to deepen the understanding of new structures, new phenomena, and new questions in communication society.
This online graduate forum welcomes academic and practical presentations, focusing on but not limited to the following topics:
- Smart media and industrial changes
- Smart media and global communication
- Smart media and social governance
- Journalism ethics in the age of smart media
- Digital culture in the era of smart media
- Media literacy in the age of smart media
- News in new media
- Case analysis on media convergence
- Studies on web playlet (short play / webisode)
- Studies on fan culture (fandom)
