Call For Papers

The European Data and Computational Journalism Conference aims to bring together industry, practitioners and academics in the fields of journalism and news production, and information, data, social and computer sciences, facilitating a multidisciplinary discussion on these topics in order to advance research and practice in the broad area of Data and Computational Journalism.

Held in Dublin, Ireland on 6th and 7th July 2017, the conference will present a mix of academic talks and keynotes from industry leaders. It will be followed by a half-day 'Introduction to Data Journalism' workshop and the 'Computational and Data Journalism Unconference'.

We invite the submission of both academic research-focused and industry-focused talks for the conference, on the subjects of journalism, data journalism, and information, data, social and computer sciences. Academic talks should be submitted as 2-page extended abstracts, using the template available at http://datajconf.com/#submissions. Industry talks should be submitted as brief talk descriptions highlighting the key themes of the talk and the relevance to the conference. All submissions are due by the 30th April.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Application of data and computational journalism within newsrooms
Data driven investigations
Data storytelling
Open data for journalism, storytelling, transparency and accountability
Algorithms, transparency and accountability
Automated, robot and chatbot journalism
Newsroom software and tools
‘Post-fact’ journalism and the impact of data
User experience and interactivity
