International Public Relations Research Conference

Over its history, the International Public Relations Research Conference (IPRRC) has become one of the top academic public relations research venues. IPRRC is known for its presentation of new PR research and for interaction among scholars and professionals. IPRRC is unique in many ways.

  • The only conference devoted entirely to research in public relations
  • Featuring informal roundtable sessions where participants actively discuss (and even contribute to) the research
  • Attended by grad students, professors and practitioners for real bridge-building between the academy and the profession
  • Limited attendance to facilitate interaction — during research sessions as well as the social events
