The 2007 inaugural conference of the Global Communication Association, sponsored by Shanghai University, was a great success! The conference, supported by Duke University, Purdue University Calumet, Tsinghua University, and Beijing Foreign Studies University, brought together over 120 scholars, researchers, and graduate students from throughout the world in a highly collegial and productive atmosphere. During the intensive two-day conference, over 50 presentations were delivered in a high-tech rotunda conference room at the beautiful campus of Shanghai University, Shanghai, China. In addition, some of the attendees took the option of participating in several well-organized pre- and post-conference cultural activities and tours.
