We encourage submissions from a wide variety of academic and professional perspectives and modes of practice, including:


This year’s conference will include a major focus on “fake news,” misinformation, and fact-checking, given the attention these topics have received in the wake of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Beyond that topic area, we are trying to cast the widest possible net in mapping out the interplay between computation and journalism.  Consider the following topic areas as inspiration, but please don’t be limited by them.


Papers will be published as part of an online proceedings linked off this site but should be considered "non-archival" for the sake of journal submissions elsewhere. At the same time, we highly encourage unique and novel contributions with limited overlap to other related publications the author may have or intend to publish. You can view selected papers from C+J 2015 and C+J 2016 online.


All submissions must be in PDF format, follow a standard set by the Association for Computing Machinery, and should not exceed five (5) pages, including references.
