With a heavy heart, we’ve decided to cancel the in-person component of this year’s International Symposium on Online Journalism due to COVID-19. We’ve been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely over the past few weeks and have decided that convening in person would not be prudent at this time. We are, however, going to try to create a virtual ISOJ, where sessions would be available online. We’ll share more details soon. Read more

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.
