Intercultural communication is becoming more and more fundamental and interdisciplinary in the 21st century when people of the world are more mobile than ever before and are mutually interconnected and interdependent. It is turning into a global dominant paradigm covering a great variety of disciplines. Scholars and laymen are more aware nowadays of the necessity to develop good intercultural relations, the key to which is the understanding of each other in the context of cultural interaction. Most countries are becoming more diverse, which increases the risk of communication failures and misunderstandings due to ethnocentrism, prejudice, racism, sexism and other challenging issues. In this context, the theme of the conference focuses on understanding that covers a great variety of aspects of interpersonal, inter-group and 
international communication. The problems of global communication posed by the present state of the discipline require more attention to both theoretical and empirical studies developing new conceptual and methodological issues. 
  
The goals of the Conference:
  • to provide scholars, educators and practitioners from different cultural communities with opportunities to interact, network and benefit from each other’s research and expertise related 
  • to intercultural communication issues;
