Submit a proposal

Call for Participation

For C+J 2021, we are following the structure used by the American Statistical Association for its Joint Statistical Meetings (and shamelessly cribbed their submission criteria below). It is an open, inclusive proposal process. You are invited to submit either a single paper proposal or suggest an entire session. While we have tried to keep the process light, our program committee will be evaluating all submissions for addition to the symposium.

We will hope to attract both researchers and creators with some curiosity about journalism, as well as news organizations looking to expand their reporting capabilities or experiment with new ways to present stories — from our traditional audience of computing researchers and social scientists, to artists and digital humanities scholars, to historians, geographers and architects. 

Talks and sessions might cover the “backstory” to a novel work of journalism, or a tool or method that could support new kinds of storytelling, or the description of a significant collaboration between journalists and some other field — the possibilities are endless.

The deadline for submissions is January 22, 2021.
