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!

Marcus Lindemann is an executive producer and journalist from Germany who is responsible for TV reports and documentaries that mainly broadcast on ZDF, Europe’s largest TV station. Since 1998, he has trained journalists to use the Internet, while he has been “online” since before the Internet launched by writing reports via a 2400-baud modem for a local newspaper after he finished school. He teaches at universities and trains journalists from different departments and media to more efficiently use the Internet. He also trains abroad in Asia and Africa. Lindemann has written manuals and published research for the last decade that explores how to best use the Internet in investigative journalism.

He was also a speaker at the Global Investigative Journalism Conferences

2011 in Kiev and 2013 in Rio de Janeiro. Due to his international involvement and training, Lindemann bridges the gap between what journalists do online everyday and what would be feasible if they more effectively use the Internet. In 2011 he published his investigation on the "netizen", someone who virtually lives online and this became a mastercase on what is feasible in the field of online profiling. The pubication has been widely spread within social media and the German public and led to invitations from police departments and the insurance industry. Since mid 2013 he also does research jobs for non journalistic contractors (assurance companies a.s.o.)

Marcus Lindemann ist geschäftsführender Autor von autoren(werk) und produziert u.a. die non-fiktive Detektivreihe „WISO ermittelt“ für das ZDF.
