AUCKLAND (AUT University/Pacific Media Watch):  NEW DEADLINE: For those who missed out earlier for the Media, Investigative Journalism and Technology conference @ AUT University on December 4/5, it is not too late - the deadline for papers/industry case studies/workshops proposals has been extended until October 22. Also note the actual dates of the conference - Dec 4/5 plus there is an event on the evening of December 3.
A good line up of keynote speakers and Asia-Pacific resource people has been arranged - they include: Kunda Dixit, editor of the Nepali Times and a leading Asia-Pacific investigative journalist, and Professor Wendy Bacon, director of the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism, and leading New Zealand investigative journalist and author Nicky Hager. Dixit will be visiting NZ as the PMC's 2010 Asian Journalism Fellow sponsored by the Asian New Zealand Foundation. Another speaker is Jim Simon, assistant managing editor of the Seattle Times, leader of a team of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists who reported on the murder of four police officers. He also has wide Asia-Pacific media investigative and training experience. The conference will also feature an exhibition of a collection of photojournalism and peace journalism, Frames of War, comprising investigative images of the 10-year Maoist War in Nepal, and excerpts of emerging investigative documentaries such as Jim Marbrook's Cap Bocage about an environmental and mining conflict in New Caledonia. Shailendra Singh of the University of the South Pacific will present a paper about investigating corruption in Fiji, and Patrick Matbob of the Divine Word University will speak about investigative journalism in Papua New Guinea.

A special Masterclass investigative journalism course will be run for younger journalists and postgraduate student journalists involved in investigative journalism courses on the Sunday, convened by Simon Collins of the New Zealand Herald and James Hollings of Massey University. A parallel peace journalism workshop will be convened by Dr Heather Devere of the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University and Ruhksana Aslam, a journalist and journalism educator from Pakistan.

Double blind refereeing of papers is available on request. Papers will be published as conference proceedings and a selection of papers will also be peer-reviewed for the May 2011 edition of Pacific Journalism Review.
