Countdown to ISOJ 2017
Since 1999, journalists, media executives and scholars from around the world have had an annual meeting in Austin, Texas to discuss the impact of the digital revolution on journalism. The International Symposium on Online Journalism is a program of the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas at Austin, a unique conference that bridges the gap between academia and the news industry.
This website is equally unique. It’s a one-of-a-kind, year-by-year repository of testimonials of the evolution of online journalism in the United States and the world. Here you can find content from every symposium since 1999, including transcripts, videos, slides and research papers. Explore the site and don’t forget to register for the next ISOJ!
The 18th ISOJ will be on April 21-22, 2017. Register now!
