May 2008. The Special Interest Group Children, Adolescents and the Media (ICA's CAM, not to be confused with our research group CCAM in ASCoR) held its first annual business meeting at the conference of the International Communication Association (ICA)  in Montreal, Canada. The meeting attracted well over 120 international researchers on children, adolescents, and the media.

There were drinks at the meeting offered by Routledge, the publisher of the Journal of Children and the Media (JOCAM). Dafna Lemish from Tel Aviv University, the founding editor of JOCAM gave an enthusiastic talk on the possible collaborations between CAM and JOCAM. Ellen Wartella and Joanne Cantor, pioneers in the field and among the founding mothers of our discipline, gave their view on the future of the field and on the importance of ICA's CAM for the discipline.
