International Symposium on Online Journalism (Austin, USA)


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.

While initially a national conference focused on the United States, the Symposium became international in 2003. Since then, ISOJ has had participants from Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and Latin America.

In 2004, a second day was added and it went from an exclusively industry-oriented event, to an academic/research conference as well. 

This year, the conference will be accompanied by a news site, containing transcripts, video, photos, news stories and more from all the symposia, since 1999. It is a unique and invaluable repository of important testimonials of professionals and academics who have been involved in the challenges of adapting journalism to the new media ecosystem that has emerged since the popularization of the web, just a few years before the first ISOJ.
