Here at we’ve been busy working on ideas for our next news:rewired digital journalism conference, which takes place in London on Friday 20 September.

It is our tenth event, the second so far in 2013, and we’re planning a jam-packed day of inspiring presentations, practical workshops and expert tips and techniques.

We will continue to work on the agenda during the coming weeks, but for now, here are just a few of the subjects we plan to cover on the day:

  • breaking news and crisis journalism
  • verification tools and techniques
  • mapping 
  • online video

We will be announcing more details on the agenda and speaker line-up soon.

In the meantime, to get an idea of the usual format, you can still view the programme from our most recent event, which was on Friday 19 April, which included a keynote speech by Facebook’s journalism programme manager Vadim Lavrusik and speakers from the Economist, Channel 4 News, Washington Post, ProPublica, Financial Times and many more.

If you’re interested in attending the one-day event on Friday 20 September, which will be held in London at MSN UK’s offices in Victoria, then you can buy limited early bird discount tickets for just £95 +VAT.
