The main goal of the international congress is to develop an understanding of the paradigm shift set in motion by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and the production of Digital Contents.
Since 1997, this congress has brought together researchers, academics, professionals, and students of Audiovisual Communication, aiming to reflect on and discuss the audiovisual sector from a holistic standpoint. Past editions took place in Salamanca (1997, 1998), Madrid (1999, 2015, 2017), Huesca (2011), and Santander (2019).
For the 2021 edition, the theme will be “Audiovisual and Creative Industries - Present and Future”. Alongside recognizing the importance of thinking and debating the challenges the audiovisual industry is facing today, mainly in the broader context of the creative industries, we also aim to promote the construction and consolidation of links between different sectors in the creative industries.

Lusófona University is the largest private university in Portugal and an integral part of the private and cooperative subsystem of Portuguese higher education.
The name of the University derives from the expression "Lusofonia" which designates the common cultural and linguistic space demarcated by the use of the Portuguese language. University Lusófona positions itself as the institution responsible for the scientific, cultural, social and economic development of this geographic and linguistic space with more than 200 million inhabitants.
Civil society and citizens, in general, expect Universities and higher education institutions in general to be one of the central development poles of their countries and their culture. In the midst of various constraints and adversities, and a national framework at the legal, economic and social level not always favorable, higher education, and in particular private higher education, has been playing this role in Portugal in a globally positive way throughout the past thirty years.
