Bootcamp - Journalistic experiments of unmanned aerial vehicles: case studies from ABC Australia, BBC, Roularta-Express

Journalists, professors, and media organisations started early to experiment with drones and
other unmanned aerial vehicles. These tools have proved to be very good allies of journalists
for an array of otherwise costly or dangerous issues: covering a demonstration or police
activity from the air or rapidly mapping a conflict or disaster zone. This session will present
three case studies of successful use of unmanned aerial vehicles for journalism.  Each speaker will talk about how their companies are approaching the use of drones, what departments are
involved in thinking about it, and show examples from the experiments.

Drones could solve editorial issues, but they also cause a lot of ethical or legal problems that will need to be addressed. What flying autorisation is required? What new privacy issues arise because small and silent drones fly over unaccessible areas and private property shooting high quality video? What would be the cost of replacing a helicopter fleet by drones? Are they powerful and effective enough to provide regular aerial photography and videography? This session will give media leaders insight about the possibilities offered by unmanned aerial vehicles, clear examples to guide future investments and strategy, and journalistic issues that newsrooms need consider about their use.

Emerging tools, techniques and strategies are a boon to newsrooms, but the experimentation and innovation they bring can come at a cost -- and no small element of risk. The rise of start-up culture has great lessons for a shifting newsroom strategy requiring contained, agile and responsive solutions. From experimentation design to project management tools, learn the new art of disruption.

Can small or shrinking newsrooms innovate? Two case studies

In developed countries, newsrooms are cutting staff left and right, begging the question if the future of quality journalism can be sustained under such structures. Despite the fact that technology brings about higher productivity, aggregators and users fill the content gap, and newsrooms create partnerships, will these measures be enough? Can newsrooms do more with less? Is innovation the answer? Who should be hired after staff reduction takes effect?

The panelists will present different scenarios of staff organization or restructuration in their media in 2012 and 2013.

Case study n°1
How La Stampa totally changed its newsroom organization - as well as its newsroom design - for a better service to readers and users and a genuine multi-platform system.

Case study n°2
How 24 Media became the first digital-native publisher in Greece and, since summer 2011, the number one in sites/visitors/ad-serving

Are Facebook, Twitter and Apple good or bad for journalism? Yes.

The rise of third-party platforms - social media like Facebook and Twitter; technology ecosystems like Apple; and telecoms, among others - has given journalists new tools for creating media and sharing it with audiences. But are these platforms more attractive for audiences than the ones the journalism organizations own? Are journalists trading short-term gains for long-term loss of control of their content and their brands?

Lecture: Responsive design for responsive news: towards a next generation of online journalism

Until now, responsive design has been discussed mostly as a technical measure to adjust the layout to different devices. However, news organisations are starting to understand that giving the user more control over how news looks will increase their metrics. News design is not just how news looks, it is how news works. What, if not only the technological aspect but the core concept of online journalism were to become responsive? How would that look and work?

Joint session with Reporters without Borders (RSF) and the Syrian Association of Free Media (ASML) - What does the future hold for a free press in Syria?

Since 2012, numerous media organizations have formed in the liberated areas of Syria, notably in print, radio and online platforms. How can these newsrooms survive in a war torn country? As this media community moves forward into the post Assad era, will their work reflect journalism which is professional and of a high quality? Or will the same demons, which previously suppressed journalism, remain in place?

The teams will have had 48 hours (20 & 21 June) to develop an innovative journalism service or application. Similar to the national workshops, a newsroom team is composed of one journalist, one designer and one developer.

A jury of experts and editors will grant three awards during this ceremony, which will close the 2013 GEN News Summit.

During the same ceremony, the "Startup for News" winner will be designated after the vote of a dedicated jury and the participants' vote (through the GEN app.). The winner will be invited to next year's GEN News Summit as a speaker and will be given a booth at the NEWS EXPO (11 to 13 June 2014).
