For the first time in its 21-year history, the International Symposium on Online Journalism was online only in 2020. ISOJ Online was held during the week of July 20 to 24, 2020. Instead of the two full days, as we have had with the in-person conference in Austin, we scheduled ISOJ Online throughout chunks of time from Monday to Friday. Check the program, the amazing lineup of speakers and watch all sessions on YouTube, in English and with translation to Spanish.

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 an historic, 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.
