From artificial intelligence fears and tools to effective strategies to increase diversity among journalists, sources and stories, the conference hopes to address its headline’ ‘A changing profession in a challenging world’. The future of science journalism, the reconstruction of the science media industry, writing articles and books, pitching, and meeting the editors, will also be in the programme.
