Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

With the World Cup and Olympics coming to Brazil, match fixing scandals spanning the globe, widespread doping, and plenty of fraud and waste in stadium contracting, there’s no shortage of hard-hitting stories to do on the sports industry. Here are three top experts on digging into the business and corruption of sports. If you haven't heard the irrepressible Andrew Jennings, now's the time to hear him go after game-fixers and bribe-takers around the world. Rob Rose, of the Sunday Times in Johannesburg, will show how the South African press dealt with scandals involving the World Cup and Olympics. And Lucio de Castro will talk about how Brazil's own media is dealing with the seamy underside of sports.
