This unique international conference mixes academic research and industry oriented panel discussions, with scholars from universities around the world and journalists and executives representing some of the most important media and news organizations from around the globe.
Since 1999, editors, producers, executives, and academics from around the country (and lately from around the world) have gathered in Austin every year (except 2000) to discuss the evolution of this new genre of journalism. The Symposium has been a small, but very intense conference that serves as a barometer for the state of Online Journalism.
In 2003, the Symposium became international, attracting participants from Europe, Asia, and Latin America. In 2004, a second day was added and we went from an exclusively industry-oriented event, to an academic/research conference as well. Professors from several universities help in the blind review process for the selection of research papers that are submitted by graduate students and faculty from around the world and presented at the symposium.
More information will be available closer to the date on the Symposium website.
