What role does computation have in the practice of journalism today and in the near future? As computer-driven forces like automation and aggregation increasingly alter the role of journalists and journalism in society, how can computation become a force of deliberate, positive social impact in journalism and civic life? Five years after the first Computation and Journalism symposium at Georgia Tech, this event brings together leaders in both journalism and computation to discuss and debate current trends and future opportunities.

Join us for the second Symposium on Computation + Journalism to be held at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2012. Visit this site for additional details.
