TVMorfosis/CONTD is an initiative that tries to open a discussion forum in Europe and Ibero-America to reach conclusions about the current situation of the digital data flow and to provide referents of equilibrium and regularization in several areas of the Audiovisual Communication.
TVMorfosis/CONTD has a different format in comparison to the classical sessions or conferences, because it is an audiovisual format that combines several live programmes. The debates and interviews of this edition are focused on the radical impact of Internet in the relationships of the actors involved in the public science communication, creating a more open and participative environment, in which innovation has an important role.
This new approach is contributing to a development rich in formats, styles and ways of dissemination, in which the creativity has no limits. In the scientific audiovisual environment, the video online represents more than 70% of the total traffic data network, so it becomes a key content to communicate science in a more attractive way to the public. However, the new ecosystem suggests numerous challenges that producers, diffusers and audiences will have to resolve as soon as possible.
During the sessions, we will listen to the opinions and considerations of experts and analysts, professionals of the audiovisual field, idea people, telecasters, researchers and European and Ibero-American students of communication.
