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!

From its first gathering in Copenhagen in 2001, the Global Investigative Journalism Conference has been a catalyst for collaboration. Journalists from around the world have come to network, brainstorm, and ultimately work together on stories that have made headlines around the world. Sometimes the stories are inspired by panelists who arrive full of tips and leads. Other times it happens in the hallways and the bars, over drinks or coffee.

This year, for the first time, we're adding a bit of structure to all the brainstorming. We'll be running a series of collaboration workshops led by experienced editors with proven records for getting award-winning stories off the ground. 

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. Leading the sports workshop will be Andy Lehren of The New York Times and Rob Rose of South Africa's Sunday Times.

Our editors will start with a brainstorming session, and then, as needed, will break up the workshop into groups to focus on individual stories and projects.

RESOURCES: The workshop team has assembled an extensive list of resources, including the best Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) tipsheets and contest entries on international sporting events and doping. Also, you can find a historic Olympic medal data.
