Live stream of 2017 ISOJ Day 2

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.

The 18th ISOJ took place in Austin on April 21 and 22, 2017. Video is available on this site, as well as Facebook and YouTube. For more news, you can also follow us on Twitter at @ISOJ2017 or with #ISOJ2017.
