The coronavirus, which emerged in Wuhan, China on December 1st, 2019, spread all over the world in a short time. The pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11th,March, 2020. Humanity is going through a period called the new normal. Vaccination and drug studies are ongoing against this pandemic. In this period, different sectors have entered into period of transition. Particularly, education and communication sector are at the center of this transition. How were the communication processes shaped during the pandemic period? How did the innovations in the field of communication brought about transform societies by this period? How are convergent technologies (mobile, cloud technologies, robots, virtual reality…) used today to control the pandemic and find vaccines or drugs?

At CTC 2021, the issues of technology, the transformation of society, digital participation, online education around the pandemic that shapes communication ecology will be discussed. The theme of CTC 2021 is “communication ecology in the age of COVID 19”. Manuel Castells named the structure dominated by information and communication networks as informationalism”, as for the society formed by this structure “network society”. Digitalization quickly leads us in all areas of our daily lives.

The new normal no longer will be today’s normal. At this point, all interrelated fields have to renew themselves, otherwise, a person, society, company, state, etc. who does not keep in step with the new world order, as Iris stated, will not be able to continue their emperorship. It is essential to update each field within the discipline of communication, that is education or academic, and to produce new approaches. In this congress; With the pandemic, it is aimed to discuss the new approaches, theories, practices and training patterns within the framework of  “Communication Ecology” through pandemic period.
