For the 2020 Symposium, we make a special call for papers that involve data visualization, with an emphasis on the communication of uncertainty. A special section of the conference and its program will be dedicated to submissions in this area. This is a two-day event. The cost of the ticket covers both days. Research. Academic research papers exploring a question of interest in journalism or data and computing sciences as it relates back to journalism and news information; Practice. Journalist-oriented talks focused on experiences or case studies in journalism including stories, visualizations, investigations, or interactive experiences produced with, by, or about data and algorithms; Technology. Descriptions of new computational and data-driven tools, platforms, applications, and services that enable novels ways of finding, producing, interacting with, or distributing news content. SUBMISSION FORMAT Research contributions should submit a 5-page paper (including references) Practice and Technology contributions may opt to submit either a 5-page paper, or a 1-page abstract. These contributions will be considered for a standalone talk or a panel. All submissions must be in PDF and use the standard ACM SIGCHI Template downloadable here. SUBMISSION SITE Please upload your submission to the EasyChair submission site before the deadline. SUBMISSION DEADLINE Friday, December 13, 2019, 8 pm ET. PRESENTATION FORMAT Accepted contributions will be invited to present the work in oral, poster, or demo sessions. PUBLICATION Written contributions 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.
