I EvalComDev International             Conference
9th           -11th May 2017, Cadiz, Spain
         This             conference is convened within the framework of
the EvalComDev R&D             Project, which aims to evaluate the field
of Communication             for Development and Social Change, closely 
           linked to social justice, so that its guiding principles can 
           be put into practice and its social impact can be            
         The EvalComDev Conference             (Evaluation of
Communication for Development and Social             Change) is a
continuation of the research and work lines             started by
Lennie & Tacchi (2013), among others. Its             main objective is
to share the research and experiences             that, at              
an international             level, have facilitated progress in the
discussions within             the C4D field. In this regard, these are
some of the             questions that lie at the heart of this
         -             Which theoretical and methodological approaches
currently             coexist within the C4D field? To what extent is
the C4D             field being receptive to               the
challenges             and needs raised by the financial crisis and to
the             alternative proposals that have emerged in both the
North               and             the Global South?
         -             What research and evaluation strategies are
likely to be             recreated in contexts different from the ones
where they             arose?
         -             What might be the indicators that would enable an
              advance in the translation,             into operational
terms, of guidelines, approaches,             methodologies and
knowledge historically accumulated within             the C4D field?
         The EvalComDev Congress             is conceived as a place of
exchange, closer to a working             seminar than to a mega event.
For this reason, we expect the             conference not to be an
overcrowded space. In the selection             of papers, priority will
be given to researchers and             mediactivists who work,
specifically, in the field of             evaluation, monitoring or
systematization of experiences,             or, failing this,           
 to researchers who have been working in C4D for the               last
few years.
         So             far, the following international experts have
confirmed             their participation:

         Call             for abstracts (450-500 words maximum) ends on
the 31st             October 2016.

         L1. To measure               communication and social change:
research, indicators,               debates, trends.
         Coord.:             Víctor Manuel Marí Sáez (UCA) (Chair) and
Jesús Rengel,             (UCA).
         How             to measure the CDSC? What are the theoretical, 
           methodological and political challenges in this field? In    
        this section those communications that reflect around these     
       issues (trends, debates and instruments) will be included.       
     Additionally, those communications that address the question       
     of the most appropriate and      CDCS will be taken into account.
         L2. Communication               and Social Change from the
organizations of the Third               Sector of Communication and
social movements.
         Coord.:             Javier Erro (UPNA) (Chair) and Gonzalo
Ceballos (UCA).
         In             this section we accept communications led from
the Third             Sector of Communication and the social movements
based on             case studies or their own communicative
         We             are looking for papers based around
communication             strategies, plans and actions put into
practice with the             active participation of citizens and the
promotion of             socio-political transformation of reality.
         L3.               Transmedia and social change.
         Coord:             Juan Pagola (Deusto) (Chair) and Marta
Sánchez-Saus (UCA)
         From             this section we propose a reflection on the
connections             between narratives, the discourses and the
social change.             Faced with the discourses and representations
that promote a             spectacularization of the reality, without
driving             structural changes, we intend to explore new avenues
from             which the NGOs and social movements propose new
narratives             connected to new emancipatory practices.
         L4.The Political               Economy of the Development and
         Coord:             Joaquín Arriola (UPV) and Mercedes Jiménez
         How is               development conceived from the CDSC point
of view? How is               the communicative dimension integrated
into the new               political economy of development? We seek
reflections that               bring up new perspectives to advance the
theoretical and               practical understanding of the cognitive
or nformational               revolution in the creation of new
territorial and social               development dynamics.
