A sneak peek at December’s news:rewired

The next news:rewired digital journalism conference is taking place on Tuesday 1 December in London, and here at Journalism.co.uk we’ve been busy planning the agenda. Topics we will be discussing at December’s news:rewired include:

The rise of chat apps – Private messaging apps have become a regular feature in the media toolbox, used both to share news with mobile audiences and to source reports. How have media organisations been working with chat apps and what could their future role in news be?

Building in-house tools – Many news outlets have been building their own tools to make everyday newsgathering and storytelling tasks simpler and quicker. But what resources go into this process and what problems are they trying to solve in the first place?

International investigations – A collaborative investigation from a global reporting team can result in major stories sweeping the international media, and December’s news:rewired will take a look at the tools and techniques needed to complete such projects.

Early-bird discounted tickets end this Friday, 4 September.

First speakers announced for news:rewired ‘in focus’ event on newsgathering and verification

Social media and mobile devices have irrevocably changed the news landscape, and now members of the public are often at the scene of a news event before a reporter even hears of the story.

Pictures and video posted to social media by eyewitness might be the first sign, but how can journalists and newsrooms reach these sources quickly, reliably and ethically?

The first ‘news:rewired in focus‘ event will take a detailed look at these questions surrounding social media newsgathering and verification, scheduled for Wednesday 21 October at Thomson Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

Tickets are now available, with the first 50 available at a discounted rate of just £60 +VAT until Friday 28 August, after which prices will rise to £80 +VAT.

Slides and audio – Social Storytelling
