International Symposium on Media Innovations (Oslo, Norway)


The International Symposium on Media Innovations (ISMI) is a small and intense conference that serves as a barometer for the state of media innovations every year. Media professionals and academics from around the world gather to discuss innovation in the media industries.

The conference will discuss innovation and change in media technologies and services, organisational structures and management, and policies. It will also focus on questions relating to media production, journalism, media consumption and use.

The theme for ISMI18 is ‘Media Innovations and Good Lives’.  During the two-day event participants will theorise media innovation and how this may relate, influence, and contribute to, living good lives in contemporary societies.  At the same time, the conference will retain a focus on the presentation and discussion of empirical cases of media innovation in different organisations and contexts.

Other key themes include:

  • Media innovation and good lives; Media innovation and social transformation; Media innovation and ethical design; Media innovation and sustainable futures
