Journalists, media executives, scholars and news enthusiasts from around the world are invited to register for the 21st International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ).
Since 1999, this annual conference has focused on the impact of the digital revolution on journalism, combining perspectives from professionals and academics. It is organized by the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas’ Moody College of Communication School of Journalism.
This year’s ISOJ will take place in the auditorium of the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas at Austin campus from April 24 to 25, 2020. As in previous years, there will be a few pre- and post-ISOJ events, such as workshops, hackathon and a conference in Spanish, the Iberian Colloquium on Digital Journalism.
Two keynotes have already been announced. Katharine Viner, editor-in-chief of The Guardian, will open ISOJ on Friday, April 24; and Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr., chairman of The New York Times Company, will open the second day of ISOJ, Saturday, April 25. There will be two other keynote speakers and 10 panels, two of them dedicated to academic research.
To encourage more international participation at the conference, simultaneous interpretation from English to Spanish will be available at the conference.
In the coming weeks, we’ll publish the full speaker lineup and program on isoj.org. In the meantime, visit this page to see videos, transcripts, research and news articles from previous symposia dating back to 1999.
