2022 Computation+Journalism Conference
From the afternoon of June 9th through the 11th, the Brown Institute will host the 2022 Computation+Journalism Conference.
News outlets rely on computation to tell some of the biggest stories of our time. Journalists collect data when official sources have not. They build statistical models to uncover disparities, previously ignored. And they craft new visualizations to help us experience our world in different ways. Some newsrooms have expertise in-house to produce this work, while others depend on collaborations with outside researchers.
The Computation+Journalism Conference (C+J) is a venue where journalists and researchers meet — news organizations share experiences with computational and social scientists, and together explore new kinds of practices that can serve the public good.
The schedule for the 2022 Computation+Journalism Conference has been posted.
The invited program is organized around computation in beats like “COVID coverage”. The contributed program contains over 50 papers and workshops on everything from applications of AI in the newsroom to a session on identifying social media manipulation.
The event is hybrid, taking place June 9-11 both in-person in Pulitzer Hall and virtually.
