About

The NUAS Communication Conference

The NUAS Communication Conference (NUASkom) is a network conference with the premise to provide the opportunity for extensive dialogue and room for discussions and exchange of experiences. The conference targets communication staff at universities in the Nordic countries. Registration is open for employees at NUAS member universities. Participants come from all over Scandinavia. The conference covers many different aspects, such as internal communication, research communications, digital and social media, recruitment of students, crisis communication, media relations, branding, and many more.

The conference language is English.

There is no specific theme for the conference, as our main objective is to present valuable cases that can serve as examples and food for thought.

Conference history

The conference usually takes place every two years and alternates between different countries and capitals/regions. The most recent conferences were held in Stockholm, Bergen, Reykjavík and Turku.

We expect up to 350 participants. The conference takes place on 17-19 April 2024 at the University of Copenhagen.

NUAS communication is one of the 14 interest groups of NUAS (“Det Nordiska Universitets Administratörs Samarbetet”). NUAS is a member-driven collaborative organization established in 1976. Today, NUAS’ membership base includes 65 universities and university colleges.

NUASkom session formats

At the NUAS communication conference, dialogue, participation, and exchange of experiences are encouraged. The NUASkom planning group knows however that some cases can be complex, and such presentations may, therefore, require more time. We try to create a programme that allows for different forms of presentation and dialogue.

Keynote

A presentation in plenum. A keynote address is first and foremost a lecture, and time does not have to be set aside for questions. However, questions are encouraged if time permits.

Seminar

A seminar is characterised by a prolonged presentation by a speaker, followed by a discussion. We recommend that the actual seminar should account for no more than two thirds of the time available to leave room for in-depth discussion at the end.

Workshop

A workshop is characterised by a high degree of active participation by the attendees. The presenter of a workshop is, therefore, primarily a facilitator of dialogue between the participants. The active participation should preferably involve more than the opportunity to ask questions to the presenter. A workshop can, therefore, include one or more minor group assignments.

Circus sessions

Concurrent circus sessions are events where about 15-20 parallel sessions of no more than 20 minutes + 10 minutes for the questions, are repeated two times. These ’circus’ sessions are mainly case presentations from representatives from the participating universities. The number of participants in such an event is much lower than in a workshop or a seminar and the atmosphere is therefore more intimate and more conducive to professional dialogue.

If you would like to make a contribution to future conferences, or if you have any questions about the event, you are always welcome to contact your fellow countryman in the planning group listed below.
