Welcome to GIJC17! Get ready for an extraordinary event. This is our 10th global conference and our first time on African soil, and we expect nearly 1200 journalists from 130 countries. Below you’ll find over 150 panels, workshops, and special events, packed with top investigative reporters ready to share their skills and secrets. Be sure to use Sched, the online app, to build your own schedule and follow conference updates.
A couple notes to help you get the most out of #GIJC17: The conference is sold out, so the smaller labs and classrooms will fill up quickly. If you want to ensure you can attend a smaller session, get there early! Also, remember that our schedule is designed to be a big buffet, not a sit-down dinner. There are 11 sessions at the same time, so feel free during a talk to leave, sample another session, and leave room for someone else. Finally, please wear your conference badge at all times. You’ll need it to get into sessions (and eat lunch). Above all, have a great time.
