Event Details

Please join us for the sixth annual Journalism Interactive -- the conference on journalism education and digital media -- at the University of Maryland in College Park., Md., on October 20-21, 2017.

The conference is hosted by the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism in cooperation with journalism schools at The University of Florida and the University of Missouri.  

The speaker lineup and schedule will be available soon on the J/i Conference website. The program features two full days of presentations and hands-on workshops about social media and the frontier of interactive journalism, with a wide range of speakers from the news industry, journalism schools and technology companies. Join us to explore strategies for teaching fact-based journalism in the age of social media, as well as emerging technologies like virtual reality, 360 video, news bots and storytelling with Snapchat and other social platforms.

J/i organizers are seeking proposals for session topics and presentations. Those selected to present in the Teach-A-Thon and research track will enjoy complimentary registration.

Your registration fee is all-inclusive and covers four meals, including a luncheon Friday and Saturday, breakfast on Saturday and dinner Friday night. Also included is free parking for all attendees at the conference hotel. Hands-on training sessions will take place Saturday afternoon a short walk away in Knight Hall, the journalism building on the University of Maryland campus. Early bird rates last through mid-July, at which point the registration fee rises to $275.

Conference Hotel -- The conference hotel (where all sessions except for the Saturday afternoon training take place) is the College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center adjacent to the University of Maryland. The street address is 3501 University Blvd, East Hyattsville, Maryland 20783. A discounted room rate at the Marriott ($109 per night) is now available through the travel page on the J/i Conference website. Discounted rooms will be limited, so be sure to book early.

Refunds: Before September 1, 2017, a full refund on registration will be available to those who need to cancel, minus Eventbrite's processing fees. From September 1 to October 1, a refund of half the registration will be given. After October 1, no refunds will be available.
