Welcome to GIJC17! Get ready for an extraordinary event. This is our 10th global conference and our first time on African soil. We’ll be bringing you over 120 panels, workshops, and special events. Our conferences, known for being hands-on, will feature winners of the Pulitzer and European Press Prizes, data journalism pioneers, and top investigative reporters from around the world ready to share their skills and secrets.
The conference begins with a reception the evening of Wednesday, November 15, and runs until 12 noon on Sunday, November 19.
There will be lots of time for networking, brainstorming, and collaborative thinking. ICIJ’s Panama Papers team will be there, as will cross-border sleuths from the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project. There will be tracks on data, corruption, finance, new models, security, and more. We’ve got an academic track for professors, plus special sessions on human trafficking and LGBTQ issues.
So come and be inspired in Johannesburg — the City of Gold — and create new networks for reporting around the world. We’ll have more info soon on the program, so be sure to follow us for the latest news on Twitter at #GIJC17. See you in Joburg!
