We hope you’ll join us and other journalists, media executives, technologists and entrepreneurs from around the world for the 2018 Collaborative Journalism Summit.

This year’s conference builds on the success of our 2017 summit, which focused on case studies of successful collaborative projects and featured keynote speakers representing The Panama Papers, Google News Lab and Electionland.

The 2018 Collaborative Journalism Summit is set for May 10–11 at the new School of Communication and Media building on the campus of Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J., and will feature a day-and-a-half of panels, roundtables, networking, and socializing about all things collaborative journalism. We expect to announce our roster of speakers in the coming weeks.

Space is limited to the first 180 registrants, so reserve your spot today. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are able to keep costs low for the conference; early-bird reservations are $35 a ticket until March 31, and $50 a ticket after that. The ticket will include appetizers and cocktails on Thursday evening and breakfast, lunch and snacks on Friday.
