November 19-20: a Seminar on participatory journalism in Barcelona

Let the conversation continue! Over the Thanksgiving break (in the US), a nice group of researchers and practitioners of participatory journalism in and outside mainstream media will meet at Vilanova i la Geltrú (in Catalonia, 50km South of Barcelona) to discuss the challenges and opportunities that the active audience brings to journalism.

The speakers:

Amy Gahran, Poynter Institute
Jan Schaffer, J-Lab / KCNN.org
Steve Outing, Enthusiast Group (videoconference)
Georgia Popplewell, Global Voices Online
Javier Moya, ElPais.com
Pau Llop, Bottup.com
Marta Torres and Laura Rahola, BdeBarna.net
Ari Heinonen, University of Tampere
Thorsten Quandt, Free University Berlin
Neil Thurman, City University London
Steve Paulussen, University of Ghent
David Domingo, University of Iowa

It is the 5th edition of the International Online Journalism Seminar, and we would love to see people from all over the world joining the conversation by the Mediterranean sea... or from your computers if you can't make it. I'll be live-blogging during the event, come back to tell your 5 cents!
