  11:30 - 13:00 am   ROUND-TABLE 2 | The conquest for economic independence: which models

There is no such thing as editorial independence without economic independence. In addition to the recent economic crisis that has eaten into budgets earmarked for advertising, deeper changes are in motion with the inexorable rise of online media. Can we (should we) pay for information over the web? What other sources of revenue are available to the media? How can the media guarantee transparency in terms of their shareholders and accounts?

In moving from traditional media to the web, advertising rates are collapsing in the face of cut-throat competition in a bid to capture web users' attention. How can publishers reverse the trend against the considerable power wielded by advertising agencies and advertisers who now control several distribution channels?

In today's world, social networks are increasingly used in election campaigns, especially since they offer a privileged way of reaching out to young citizens who rarely read the traditional media.

  9:00 am   RECEPTION

  9:15 - 10:45 am   ROUND-TABLE 4 | Droit, Law, ethics: new media = new rules of the game?

Not a day goes by without the treatment of online information raising ethical questions about an ecosystem where only certain players feel the need to abide by customary rules of journalistic practice (respect for privacy, verified information, and so on). The different ways in which the web is being used are also raising concerns about copyright issues. Are Hadopi and ACTA an appropriate response to such issues? Do we need a new set of rules?

How will TV sets plugged directly into the Internet be different from today's sets? Will such televisions spawn a new range of applications? Are new programmes in the pipeline?

In the wake of the increasing number of people that can produce and disseminate masses of information to a very wide audience, are the position and role of journalists in today's information ecosystem at stake? Should they redefine the parameters of their mission and filter the growing volume of data streams? Can they turn a blind eye to what is going on in the social networks? Will social networks take over from traditional pub talk as a way of gauging public opinion?

  14:30 - 15:15 pm  WORKSHOP 7 | Data-driven journalism and open data: information in figures?

The Internet, digitisation and the development of tools that continually record our every action and interaction have produced colossal amounts of data, representing a goldmine of information for journalists. This trend also concerns local authorities, who are faced with calls to disclose their data in a move towards greater democratic transparency and economic efficiency.
