Computation + Journalism Call

Miami, FL, USA

February 1-2, 2019

The Computation+Journalism Symposium is a celebration and synthesis of new
ways to find and tell news stories with, by, and about data and algorithms.
It is a venue to seed new collaborations between journalists and computer
and data scientists: a bazaar for the exchange of ideas between
industry/practice and academia/research. For more information see:

Call for Participation

We invite the submission of contributions exploring the interface between
data and computer science and journalism in three categories: research,
practice, and technology.


   *Research*. Academic research papers exploring a question of interest in
   journalism or data and computing sciences as it relates back to journalism
   and news information;

   *Practice*. Journalist-oriented talks focused on experiences or case
   studies in journalism including stories, visualizations, investigations, or
   interactive experiences produced with, by, or about data and algorithms;

   *Technology*. Descriptions of new computational and data-driven tools,
   platforms, applications, and services that enable novels ways of finding,
   producing, interacting with, or distributing news content.



   Research contributions should submit a 5-page paper (including

   Practice and Technology contributions may opt to submit either a 5-page
   paper, or a 1-page abstract. These contributions will be considered for a
   standalone talk or a panel.

   All submissions must be in PDF and use the standard ACM SIGCHI Template
   downloadable here <>


Please upload your submission to the EasyChair submission site
<> before the deadline.


Wednesday October 31, 8pm eastern time.


Accepted contributions will be invited to present the work in oral, poster,
or demo sessions.


Written contributions will be published as part of an online proceedings
linked off this site but should be considered “non-archival” for the sake
of journal submissions elsewhere. At the same time, we highly encourage
unique and novel contributions with limited overlap to other related
publications the author may have or intend to publish. You can view
selected papers from the C+J 2017 Symposium online
<>. Accepted
contributions will be invited to extend papers and abstracts into book
chapters for an edited collection to be published by Columbia University
