For the second time in its 22-year history, the International Symposium on Online Journalism will be online only in 2021. ISOJ Online will be held during the week of April 26 to 30, 2021. Instead of two full days, as we have had with the in-person conference in Austin, last year we scheduled ISOJ Online throughout chunks of time, from Monday to Friday. That formula worked very well. We broke records and reached thousands of people in 134 countries in 2020, so we decided to repeat it in 2021.


You can see the program, the amazing lineup of speakers from 2020 and watch all sessions on YouTube, in English and with translation to Spanish. Meanwhile, we are working to put together another amazing program for the 22nd ISOJ.

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.
