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.

We’re happy to announce that digital tickets for the next news:rewired are now available, so even if you can’t make it to the conference itself you still have a chance to catch the talks and sessions from the day.

The event, at MSN HQ in London on Wednesday 23 July, brings leaders in digital journalism together to discuss their work, share advice and lead workshops in relevant areas.

As well as the networking opportunities and extra materials available on the day, there will be focused post-lunch workshops looking at mobile apps and tools for journalists; creating immersive, longform stories; and using analytics to understand the audience.

While these workshops will give delegates a practical, hands-on guide to the particular subjects, they will not be filmed, and will not be included in the digital ticket offering.

There is also a full day of training the day after the conference, with a choice of courses in mobile journalism with RTÉ’s Glen Mulcahy, data journalism with Conrad Quilty-Harper of Ampp3d, or creating a buzz on social media with BuzzFeed UK editor Luke Lewis.
