The workshop is organized in Dubrovnik from Sept 16th– Sept 19th 2024, as a part of the 29th Annual International Conference on Information Technology and Journalism: Artificial Intelligence and Media

In recent years, virtual communication has become an increasingly popular model of interaction for individuals, communities, and organizations. With the exponential growth of the social media popularity, messaging apps, and virtual reality platforms, people can now interact with others in ways that were previously impossible. However, as virtual communication becomes more prevalent, it also poses new challenges and risks.

We invite the scientific community – researchers, professors, and PhD students to submit papers that explore the challenges posed by virtual communication, including but not limited to:

  • The impact of virtual communication on the individualization of communication habits
  • The role of virtual communication in shaping public opinion and political discourse

  • The ethical issues associated with virtual communication
  • The use of virtual communication in education and training
  • The implications of virtual communication for business and commerce
  • AI-driven content personalization and its impact on user engagement
  • The role of AI in combating misinformation and deepfakes
  • AI’s influence on the creative processes in media production
  • The evolution of audience analytics and its implications for media strategy
  • AI and the future of public relations and communication strategies

  • Has online journalism changed the landscape of news media?
  • Has the rise of online journalism led to a decline in the quality and credibility of news reporting?
  • Online journalism role in shaping public opinion and political discourse
  • Online journalism influence on the way we consume news, and what are the implications for democracy
  • Fake news and misinformation in the online environment
