The 13th Dubrovnik Media Days conference, entitled “Digital Intermediaries and Media Pluralism”, is calling for paper proposals. The event will take place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on the 27th and 28th of October 2017. Accepted papers will be peer reviewed and published in a proceedings publication.
The conference is especially interested in the impact digital intermediaries, such as Facebook, have on media pluralism. How could media pluralism in individuals’ personalized news streams be measured? The organisers have provided the following (non-exhaustive) list of topic suggestions:
- What are the indicators/measures of media pluralism of content distributed & shared by digital intermediaries?
- What (big) data sources and computational techniques can be used for measuring media pluralism of content distributed & shared by digital intermediaries?
- How to benchmark or weight indicators of media pluralism in content distributed & shared by digital intermediaries?
Paper abstracts are due by the end of July, and acceptees will be notified by August 10th. Full papers, of 4 000 – 6 000 words, are due by October 1st.
The full call for papers is available on the conference website.
