The 7th Digital Innovators' Summit takes place in Berlin, Germany on 24 and 25 March (and with some non-programme-related activities planned for the 23rd).
The 7th edition will build on the successful previous editions to bring you a programme rich in case studies, practical insights and inspiration.

Pre-agenda registration is now open. Register today to save.
The Digital Innovators’ Summit was launched in 2007 to help traditional magazine publishers come together and hear how the magazine industry was developing digital businesses. In that time, as digital knowledge and experience has increased and magazine companies have become far more diversified in terms of their media platforms, the event has become attractive to a wider audience and now looks at innovations and future trends of all aspects of digital media.
The Digital Innovators’ Summit is organized by FIPP, the worldwide magazine media association, VDZ, the Association of German Magazine Publishers and emediaSF, a San Francisco based digital media consultancy.

The Rethink Media Conference returns to Birmingham on 25 March 2014 for another one-day festival of talks, activities and big debates on the state of the UK’s media industries.

Professionals tasked with looking to the future or developing inspiring new content will be provided with insights, debate and food for thought to help solve the many challenges on the horizon.

The Polis Journalism Conference
Start date: 28/03/14
Our conference in 2013 on ‘Trust in Journalism’ was a great success with more than 500 people enjoying the day. Our next annual conference will be on Friday March 28th 2014.
The theme of next year’s conference is Transparency and Accountability. So we will cover everything from whether the Guardian is right to publish the Snowden files to how the UK’s press should be held to account.
It is our fifth conference and #Polis14 will be bigger and better than ever before.
There will be around 50 journalists speaking as well as academics, politicians, lawyers and activists. There will be keynote speeches, conversations and panel debates in the main hall. And we will have two other parallel venues for workshops, debates and presentations on all aspects of transparency and accountability journalism.
We invite anyone with an interest in news media to attend – it’s free and we provide sandwiches and drinks. We hope to have a networking event afterwards, too.
Email us at Polis@lse.ac.uk if you have good ideas for speakers you want to hear.
You can keep up with Polis by following either @CharlieBeckett or @PolisLSE on Twitter or email email@example.com to sign up for our newsletter. We’re also on Facebook and Tumblr
If you would like to be a partner or sponsor of the conference email Marion Koob at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are grateful to the support from the BBC Academy and the European Broadcasting Union.
Taming the news beast – Finding context and value in news and data
Start date: 01/04/14
Time: 14:00 to 17.45, followed by networking, wine and nibbles
As content volumes and sources have exploded, for news producers and consumers alike it has become harder to extract context and value. The rise of digital publishing has cannibalized print revenues, and companies have to be more innovative in packaging their offerings for a competitive marketplace. Consumers too are faced with an unprecedented information overload and need ways to ensure they see only the services they truly value.
This event will bring together leading practitioners in the UK news industry to share knowledge from the intersections of technology, semantics and product development. It will show how innovative approaches to handling text and data are helping journalists tell better stories, business make better products, and users get better services.
The event is FREE for full-time students and members of ISKO UK, a not-for-profit professional association for those working in the fields of information science and knowledge organisation. For non-members the fee is just £40.
