About the theme: “What Is News Now?” The intersection of media, technology and social change has profoundly disrupted the business of news and storytelling. Join hundreds of media professionals to look at new-era trends and transformations in media and the news itself. Speakers will focus on forces that are re-shaping today’s world and the way we report it, such as artificial intelligence, digitalization, social media, “fake news,” attacks on the free press, big data, smart-city testbeds and China’s rise.

Workshops and participant panels: Workshops will provide opportunities to sharpen and update professional skills. Participants can also propose and participate in panels.

Why Singapore? As the crossroads of Asia, Singapore is one of the most “smart” and connected tech hub cities in the world, known for its green spaces as well as amazing cuisine and hawker centers. The final conference day will look at what has transformed Singapore, and participants will be able to choose from a diverse selection of city tours.

About the conference venue: The Singapore Management University School of Law is located in the heart of the city’s business and culture district, close to museums, historic buildings, shopping and the famous Gardens by the Bay. The school sits at the foot of Fort Canning Park, the iconic hilltop landmark and lush historical garden that is connected to the school by a unique walkway.
