IAICS Conference

The goals of the conference

In 1991, the conference changed its focus in several ways. It created an organization known as the International Association for Intercultural Communication Studies (IAICS) that is housed with the Intercultural Studies Institute at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. It also established its own journal of Intercultural Communication Studies (ICS) with Bates L. Hoffer (Trinity University) as its General Editor. Currently, Guo-Ming Chen (University of Rhode Island), L. Brooks Hill (Trinity University), Nobuyuki Honna (Aoyama University, Japan), and Robert N. St. Clair (University of Louisville) are the other members of that editorial team. In addition to creating an organization, the conference shifted its focus towards interdisciplinary models of communication across languages and cultures
