As we finish our latest news:rewired digital journalism event, in London today, we are very happy to announce the dates for forthcoming events.

The next event will be the first in a new series of half-day events, taking a detailed look at an important topic in digital journalism.

The first 'news:rewired in focus' event will look at social media search and verification, scheduled for Wednesday 21 October at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London. Starting at 1pm there will be a networking lunch, followed by a keynote speech, panel discussion and practical workshops looking at how journalists can quickly, ethically and reliably find stories from social sources.
