MediaNumeric Conference - The Resilience of News Media: Data, Storytelling & Democracy

The two-day, international event will create a space for exchange on how to wade through and use (big) data, tell enriched (multimedia) stories, and contribute to democracy by supporting a news media ecosystem that is more resilient to misinformation.

Digitisation has changed all aspects of the news media landscape, from the way content is created, to how it is distributed and interacted with. European citizens and journalists are now connected to the largest intelligence network that has ever existed. On one hand, this rich data provides an opportunity for data-driven journalism to explore new stories and to delve into large (historical) datasets. On the other hand, the advent of these technological developments generates new challenges for journalists and citizens, such as the easy, prolific spread of inaccurate and misleading information. These issues have shaken the foundations of the journalism profession.


Detailed Conference Programme:


Day 1 will include a keynote presentation followed by sessions offering presentations and discussion around three themes: Search & Exploration of Data, Telling Stories with Data, and Tracking & Debunking Misinformation.


Day 2 will be dedicated to hands-on workshops on data-driven journalism, fact-checking and exploitation of the MediaNumeric Academy in an academic setting.


✓ Entirely free of charge and open to anyone interested in data-driven journalism and storytelling.
✓ Attendees can join Day 1 IN-PERSON OR ONLINE. The workshops on Day 2 WILL NOT BE STREAMED.
✓ Held in English.
✓ Coffee breaks & lunch provided.
