The Media Technology Bachelor Programme from the School of Multimedia Technology and Communication (SMMTC), Universiti Utara Malaysia in collaboration with the Civic Media Research Unit (CMRU) will be organizing our 4th International Conference on Media Studies (ICMS) from 9 November and 10 November 2021. The conference will be co-hosted by Bansomdejchaopraya Rajabhat University (BSRU), Thailand; Ahmad Dahlan University (ADU), Indonesia; Suan Sunantha Rajabhat University (SSU) Thailand, University of Bengkulu, Indonesia and Ajeenkya DY Patil University, India.

             Although the current pandemic has limited our opportunity to meet in person, innovation in media technology has given us the opportunity for wider representation from various countries through virtual technologies. The conference aims to create a collective environment for researchers and practitioners to present their research findings and engage in constructive dialogues pertaining to media innovation in these trying times. Thus, in view of recent events, our conference will adopt a virtual platform delivery with the theme Media Innovation in Challenging Times.
