            The development of advanced media and communication technologies has shaped the various forms and model of communication practices in everyday life of the communities in Southeast Asian. The uses of mass media and new communication and information technologies have brought consequences on the economy, politics, and socio-cultural practices of the SEA region. Paul Virilio (2011) suggested that the speed of information (and information bombs) within the society at large have impacted into the occurrences of economy, intersecting business    and political aspects, and disrupting the perseverance of high-local socio-cultural values, norms, and ideological system.

            The changes on technological developments have shaped many ways of responses of the governments and societies in the Southeast Asian context. Moreover, the global cultural movements attempted by various social structures in the local societies, in turn, have brought many particular forms of adaptations, adoptions, and negotiations that initiated by and from local/collective cultures.

            This third conference covers issues and discourses that have been taken place in the societies of the Southeast Asian countries and discussing about the intersecting business and consequences from the advancement of global communication and media technological developments.
