The event, which will be held at MSN UK's offices in Victoria, London, will bring together key digital journalism experts and innovators at the end of the year for a day of sessions, workshops, debates and discussion.
The day will be geared towards equipping delegates with knowledge of the latest techniques and tools for producing top-notch digital journalism, as well as offering insight into some of the innovative projects evolving within today's newsrooms - and outside of them.
Session and workshop topics to be covered at the one-day conference will include a discussion on the key digital lessons for news outlets in 2012, and a look at how to measure success in 2013, a look at the opportunities for long-form, in-depth journalism on digital platforms, how to collect social conversations on networked platforms and tips for effective audio storytelling.
There will also be practical pointers on best practice in liveblogging and top tips on Twitter reporting strategy.
Sessions will range from panels offering presentations and discussion around certain topics, and more workshop-style sessions, offering demonstrations and practical guides to digital tools. Speakers already confirmed include Bobbie Johnson, co-founder of Matter and European editor of GigaOm, Alex Miller, executive editor of Vice UK, Nate Lanxon, editor of Wired.co.uk and Google+, with the speaker to be confirmed.
Journalism.co.uk will be announcing more session and speaker details very soon; keep an eye on www.newsrewired.com for regular updates.
At December's event Journalism.co.uk's also wants to make sure delegates get to hear about as many of the tools and platforms which have launched in the past year as possible, and offer the chance to meet those behind the technology.
So this time news:rewired will also look to include a 'lightning round' of 90-second thought provokers, which it is hoped will also give young innovators in the journalism industry a chance to showcase their work.
There are two ticketing options on offer for news:rewired this time round.
news:rewired: Delegates can purchase a ticket for the one-day conference at the earlybird discount rate of £95 (+VAT) for a limited time. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided at the day-long event, as well as networking drinks afterwards.
news:rewired PLUS: With this new option delegates can instead purchase one of our news:rewired PLUS tickets, which includes both a day's intensive training on the Wednesday (5 December) and the day-long conference on the Thursday (6 December). With the news:rewired PLUS ticket delegates can choose one of the three options below for the day of intensive training (the links below give an idea of the content of each course - the dates mentioned on the pages linked to are not part of news:rewired PLUS, this is only available on Wednesday 5 December):
- Introduction to data journalism, run by Paul Bradshaw

- Advanced online research skills, run by Colin Meek
There will only be 50 tickets (including news:rewired and news:rewired PLUS tickets) available at the discounted rate. We've already sold half of these and the discount will only apply until 31 August. After this date or once all the tickets have been sold, whichever comes first, the news:rewired ticket price will rise to £130 (+VAT) and the news:rewired PLUS ticket price will rise to £310 (+VAT).
You can buy either of these tickets at this link. If you select a news:rewired PLUS ticket Journalism.co.uk will contact you to confirm which training course you would like to attend on the Wednesday and provide further details. Space on these training courses will be limited and running of them will be subject to demand.
Journalism.co.uk also offers training short courses and in-house training in digital journalism throughout the year. Take a look at the 20 courses taking place this autumn.
