The Nordic Data Journalism conference 2016, or NODA2016, will begin tommorrow (Thursday the 21st) with an academic preconference. The main event, starting on Friday, will focus on the practical side of doing data journalism.

The event is hosted by the University of Helsinki, in Finland. This year NODA is combined with the Finnish investigative journalism conference, Tutki!2016.

The preconference will start with sessions dealing with metascientific aspects of data journalism research: what is data journalism, what about it needs to be researched, and how can data journalism be categorized?

Further presentations delve into the more practical issues revolving around data journalism such as source protection, ethical probelms, and education. The day’s final sessions relate to the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) in journalism, and the use of algorithms in newsrooms.

Further information of the event is available on the conference’s website. Tip sheets for some of the sessions are available on the NODA2016 blog. The event can be followed on Twitter by the hashtag #noda16.
