Abstract

While new media technologies hold the potential to serve journalism's dual goals of informing and engaging the public, these technologies also challenge the journalistic norms of accuracy, impartiality and transparency. The key question in this workshop is: How can HCI support accurate, impartial and transparent journalism? This question is ever more timely as the need for accurate and credible journalism is growing amid the proliferation of disinformation and opinion manipulation. In this workshop, we will identify challenges and solutions in the design of user interfaces, user experiences and production processes in journalism. We bring together researchers and practitioners designing, deploying and studying new technologies in journalism. The goal of the workshop is to harness the potential of HCI for supporting accurate, impartial and transparent journalism.
