Special Event: “MediaSpace and Enlightenment. How to See the Extraterrestrial and Tell about It»
Digital media constructs space, enlightening and mythologizing - we need to learn how to distinguish between "good" and "bad" popularization of science. Comprehension of the "media cosmos" requires media literacy. Why astrological data is aesthetized? Does the media space agenda reflect real directions in the research and exploration of outer space? How do media make astrophysicists and cosmonauts into the heroes of the new "global world" and the icon of mass culture? Astronomers, scientific journalists, space bloggers and media researchers will together look for answers to these intriguing questions.

Round table: "Illusion of objectivity", "naive realism" and the era of "post-truth": why is critical thinking important in the modern world?
How does the politics of "post-truth" support media opposition? How does the new state of the media environment change the relationship between the mass-media and society? What is the difference between propaganda and "fake news"? What is the psychology of "fake-news" and how do cognitive distortions influence the processes of information perception? Does fighting with fakes help to increase media literacy or provoke a total distrust to all media? What is rational fact-checking and reasonable media consumption? Why is the production of modern media important to consider in a moral and ethical context?

A special event together with the "Journalist"
“Augmented Reality or Simulation: How do VR and 360-video technologies affect documenting and journalism?”
Immersive journalism is a new term that is used to designate activities at the junction of the journalist's profession and technology (primarily VR and 360-video). Such hybridization inevitably leads to the appearance of many questions:
• When is it appropriate to talk about journalism, and when about the attraction?
• When can you talk about "reality", and when about "simulation"?
• Where is "found", and where is "done": how is the objective reality correlated with the direction of the material?
