The Marie-Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network JOLT and the School of Communication at the University of Navarra call for the submission of ABSTRACTS for their joint JOLT - CICOM 2021 Conference: "Harnessing Data and Technology for Journalism", to be held on a hybrid format in Pamplona, Spain, on 22-24 September, 2021.
JOLT project aims to harness digital and data technologies for journalism by providing a framework for the training and career development of 15 Early Stage Researchers. JOLT addresses the global lack of a systematic, rigorous and innovative approach to digital and data journalism research and training by uniquely combining insights from computer science, data analytics, business, sociology, communication theory, journalism studies, and political science.
Founded in 1986, the International Communication Conference (Congreso Internacional de Comunicación, CICOM) is the oldest academic conference held in Spain about media and communication research. Organised annually by the School of Communication at the University of Navarra, this event gathers international academics, media practitioners and researchers to discuss core issues in the field of Communication.
