Hawaii 2019 Workshop – Deadline extended


The tentative agenda for the ‘This is Not a Drill’ journalism workshop in Hawaii in January 2019 is now available here. The workshop, organised by Atomic Reporters and the Stanley Foundation, explores how evolving digital information and communications technologies are interacting with nuclear risks, and the challenges and opportunities for journalists reporting on these risks.

Technological innovation has always been part of nuclear weapons systems and strategy. But contemporary and emerging use of new information, computation, and communications technologies, social media, disinformation, cyber strategies- as well as access to open source data – is disrupting the risk and response landscape.

We’ve tried to select speakers and topics  to chart this new territory with journalists and explore meeting reporting challenges from the impact of the digital information revolution on nuclear strategy.

To accommodate the many journalists interested in this event, we have also decided to extend the deadline for applications by five days. It is now midnight EST of November 5, 2019.

Atomic Reporters and the Stanley Foundation will hold the 2019 Journalism Workshop in Honolulu, Hawaii from January 8-12, 2019, just ahead of the January 13 anniversary of the false alert. In total, 15 journalists from the U.S., Europe, and Asia will be selected to take part in the workshop. Find more on the workshop here.
