Call for proposals
The Department of Journalism and Mass Communication of Chelyabinsk State
University informs about the international conference *III PMMIS* (Post
massmedia in the modern informational society)
The conference topic is *“The journalistic text in a new technological
environment: achievements and problems”*
Dates of the conference: March 28–29, 2019
Venue: Chelyabinsk State University, Chelyabinsk, Russia
During the conference, we plan to discuss a wide range of issues related
to the impact of technological production conditions and the
distribution of journalistic materials with respect to different aspects
of journalistic creativity. The Organizing Committee plans to unite
researchers who devote their works to the technical and technological
aspects of massmedia development, and scholars studying the threats and
risks of new technological conditions in the field of professional
journalism. The main task of the conference is to find out the points
for overcoming the negative consequences of accelerated technological
development of the industry, to remove or alleviate the contradictions
that arise in the field of modern training and professionalization of
journalists, to clarify the problem areas for development and promising

checking; fact checking as the commercialization of fear of being
deceived and the risks of developing fact checking resources.
