We're continuing to add new speakers, sessions and training opportunities to the 2015 IRE Conference schedule. Here are a few recent additions:
Early bird registration ends Friday! Register today to save $30.
A second showcase panel, "Sexual assault investigations: Empathy, accuracy, transparency." Panelists will include an author of the report analyzing Rolling Stone's University of Virginia article, a reporter who covered campus sexual assault and a survivor she profiled, and an expert on the impact of assault.
Pop-up panels (formerly IRE by Design) are back for a second year. Starting June 1 you'll be able to pitch ideas for these 60-minute sessions. Attendees will vote on the ideas, and the top four will earn spots on the schedule.
A new hands-on series called "Finding the story." These classes will guide participants through the process of obtaining and digging through specific data sets for story ideas they can take back to their newsrooms.
