The biannual NordMedia conference is arranged by the Nordic media research associations in cooperation with Nordicom and the host university. The conference was first arranged in Oslo in 1973, and has ever since been arranged by the Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Iceland) in turn.

The NordMedia 2015 conference is hosted by the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication at the University of Copenhagen between August 13th to 15th. The conference attracts more than 300 researchers mostly from the Nordic countries, but is also gaining international attention. The theme of the 2015 conference is Media Presence – Mobile Modernities. Keynote speakers are Professor Franc Biocca, Director of Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University, and Associate Professor Lee Humphreys, Department of Communication, Cornell University. Furthermore two plenary panels will be presenting under the titles "Nordic Media Systems: Worth defending, worth developing, worth exporting?" and "Big Brothers and Little Sisters - Surveillance, sousveillance, and coveillance on the Internet".

There is the opportunity to present papers in 10 different divisions and a number of temporary working groups.

The chairs of the organizing comittee is Christa Lykke Christensen and Anne Jerslev.
