In the time of reform and adjustment, cultural exchange and communication play an increasingly significant role in the competition among countries and hence the urgency of improving international communication and cultural strength. It is a challenge for people who work in the area of international communication to demonstrate a China that is fast-developing and diversified in culture for the richness and intricacy of culture are embodied in different regions, different nationalities, different layers and different historical periods. China is not a global power in the sense of cultural communication, but a global power as cultural resources. To research the history, current situation and problems of international communication of Chinese culture in the context of globalization, to reflect on the cultural conflict and cultural imperialism for a multicultural approach to the world development with mutual respect and understanding, and to have a better understanding of the features of diversified Chinese culture, this conference will provide ample resources for rethinking the cross-cultural communication practice of Chinese mass media. The conference also aims to help with the dialogue and cooperation between scholars around the world.
To promote the international communication of Chinese culture, AICCC has successfully organized three annual international conferences since its establishment in 2010. With the rich experience and latest research on international communication of Chinese culture from the conferences, AICCC has become an important platform for the researches on cross-cultural studies about sharing Chinese culture globally.

1. Image-building: the interactive process of cultural communication
