The Cyberjournalism Observatory (ObCiber), from the Centre for Studies for Technologies and Communication Sciences (CETAC.media) organises the I International Cyberjournalism Congress, concerning the general theme of “3G Journalism”, on the 11th and 12th of December 2008, at the University of Oporto.
The aim is to congregate experts of this area to analyse and discuss both the main questions of cyberjournalism practice today, as well as the new educational, professional and business realities facing cyberjournalism. Subjects like the challenges brought by convergence and multitextuality, backpack journalism, journalism versus blogging, citizen journalism, and innovations in technology and entrepreneurship experiences will be approached.
The congress is also meant to be a moment for updating scientific knowledge on cyberjournalism. Therefore, prominent national and foreign scholars will be invited to take part.
