The European Journalism Centre, Open Knowledge Foundation, and International Journalism Festival are pleased to announce the 3rd edition of Europe’s largest data journalism event, the School of Data Journalism.
This year’s edition features a team of about 25 expert panelists and instructors from The New York Times, The Daily Mirror, Twitter, Ask Media, KnightMozilla and others. The experts will lead participants in a mix of discussions and hands-on sessions focusing on everything from data-driven investigative journalism to emergency reporting, using spreadsheets and social media, data visualisation, and mapping techniques for journalism.
The 2014 edition takes place in Perugia, Italy between April 30th and May 4th, 2014 as part of the International Journalism Festival. Entry to the School of Data Journalism panels and workshops is free, but registration is required.
Last year’s event featured a stellar team of panelists and instructors, attracted hundreds of journalists, and was fully booked within a few days. The previous year saw the launch of the seminal Data Journalism Handbook, which remains the go-to reference for practitioners in the field.
How to register:
There is no fee to attend the workshops, but there are a limited number of available seats and they will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. A list of speakers, the schedule, and session registration can be found on the School of Data Journalism website.
Details may also be found on the International Journalism Festival website.
What do you need to bring?
Enthusiasm and a laptop are required for the workshop sessions. Please note that for hands-on workshops, tablet devices will not be sufficient.
