Prague Media Point - What's Working
December 5-7, 2019
Prague, Czech Republic

Dear colleagues,
It is our pleasure to announce that this year's Prague Media Point Conference under the title What's Working will take place on December 5-7, 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic. Scholars from all disciplines and interdisciplinary fields are kindly invited to submit their abstracts.

Confirmed speakers:
* Folker Hanusch, Professor of Journalism, University of Vienna
* Silvie Lauder, Journalist, Respekt * Pierre Romera, Chief Technology Officer, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists


Volumes have been written and numerous events have been held over the past decade lamenting the plight of the media in the modern world. Much less attention has been paid to what's actually working. That is why the 2019 edition of the Prague Media Point will highlight inspiring examples that have managed to overcome the challenges the media are facing these days.

We encourage submissions of abstracts that focus on examples in the media that appear to be working and generating impact in the following subjects and topics, though this list is not exhaustive:

* Technology in editorial work and content delivery
* Engagement through social media
* Examples of solutions or constructive journalism
* Trust-building techniques
* Different forms of storytelling
* Youth-driven news delivery
* Innovative business and ownership models
* Diversity in the newsroom
* Data journalism
* Minority media

Please submit your 500-word abstracts and a short bio by the extended deadline of May 31, 2019 to (pmp /at/
