We are pleased to inform you that the 27th International Congress of the SEP, organised by the Spanish Society of Journalism (SEP) and the Faculty of Communication of the University of Seville on 27 and 28 May 2021 in virtual format, is now underway.
Under the title ‘Transformación digital. Challenges and expectations for journalism’, this scientific forum establishes the necessary connection and at the highest level between the academic, business and professional worlds around the general theme of the activity and between the agents involved. It aims to advance the importance of the digital transformation as a strategy of the media and journalistic companies, in clear harmony with what has been happening in recent years and which is becoming increasingly consolidated in the world journalistic panorama. Therefore, it implies talking about a change in mentality, attitude and willingness to adopt and innovate with technology as a strategic and competitive differentiator and never as a medium in itself.
The event will be attended by international professionals of the stature of Charo Henríquez, head of Development and Editorial Support at The New York Times, and Alfred Hermida, an academic at the University of British Columbia and one of the founders of BBCNews.com.
The participation of renowned Spanish professionals has also been confirmed, such as Pepe Cerezo, professor at the University Carlos III of Madrid and director of Evoca Media; Noemí Ramírez, general director of Product and Clients at PRISA; Javier Martínez, director of Digital Strategy at La Vanguardia, and José Ignacio Álvarez Ortiz, director of the applications business area of Oracle Ibérica.
The Congress calls on the entire research community to present papers in 5 major thematic areas:
1. Evolution and adaptation of the journalistic profession to new challenges.
2. Innovation of new business models and entrepreneurial niches.
3. Active audiences and distribution strategies.
4. Recent trends in content production and new narratives.
5. Teaching and research in post-Covid-19 journalism.
