Held in Cardiff, Wales, UK, the 2nd edition of the conference will present a mix of academic talks and keynotes from industry leaders. It will be followed by a day of workshops.Submissions of academic research focused talks, industry talks, as well as hands-on workshops were invited for the conference, on the subjects of journalism, data journalism, computational journalism, and information, data, social and computer science.
