IT’S TIME TO REGISTER FOR ASNE-APME CONFERENCE OCT. 16-18 AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY
Data storytelling. Navigating the shifting media ethics of the digital age. Creating a real-time news desk.
Those are some of the topics we’ll be discussing at the ASNE-APME conference of the nation's top editors Oct. 16-18 at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. The Associated Press Photo Managers is also a partner in the conference.
The theme for the Silicon Valley conference is 3-D: Digital, Diversity, Disruption.
On Friday evening, the conference will kick off with a talk on creativity by David Kelly, founder of the Institute of Design at Stanford and a creator of the Apple mouse. That will be followed by a reception where you can sip California wine with friends, listen to stand-up comedy and bid in the annual live and silent auctions of great items.
Highlights of some of the exciting sessions Saturday and Sunday:
- Tom Rosenstiel of the American Press Institute will start Saturday with “What’s New, What’s Next,” looking as what the future has in store for the news industry.
- The ASNE-APME awards luncheon on Saturday will celebrate the best in journalism.
- “The War on Science: What Journalists Need to Know” will explore later Saturday why millions of Americans reject what science says about topics like global warming.

DON’T MISS: UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY AT STANFORD’S d.school FOR CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS
Attendees at the ASNE-APME conference are being offered an exceptional opportunity by Stanford’s Institute for Design – or the d.school – which is a renowned hub for innovation at the university.
The d.school is offering a FREE workshop Friday, Oct. 16, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. – just before the start of the ASNE-APME conference – for a limited group of editors who register for the conference.
Here’s the description of the workshop:
1-4 p.m. Pre-conference event: Hands-on design thinking seminar
Using design thinking as a framework, workshop participants will tackle a hands-on innovation challenge. Participants will complete the workshop with an understanding of the key tenets of design thinking in the newsroom and a sense for ways they can incorporate this into their work. Limited to 50 participants who have registered for the ASNE-APME Conference. Advance sign-up required.
More on the d.school:
The d.school is a hub for innovators at Stanford. Students and faculty in engineering, medicine, business, law, the humanities, sciences, and education find their way here to take on the world’s messy problems together. Human values are at the heart of our collaborative approach. We focus on creating spectacularly transformative learning experiences. Along the way, our students develop a process for producing creative solutions to even the most complex challenges they tackle. This is the core of what we do.
In a time when there is hunger for innovation everywhere, we think our primary responsibility is to help prepare a generation of students to rise with the challenges of our times. We define what it means to be a d.school student broadly, and we support “students” of design thinking who range from kindergarteners to senior executives. Our deliberate mash-up of industry, academia and the big world beyond campus is a key to our continuing evolution.
