The event will bring international references in data journalism – like Mar Cabra, who headed the team responsible for the research of the Panama Papers, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize; Jonathan Stray, a computer journalist from Columbia University with passages through the New York Times and ProPublica data teams; Momi Peralta, leader of La Nación Data in Argentina, the most awarded data journalism team in Latin America; and Jennifer Stark, a computer journalist from the University of Maryland, with publications in Washington Post and Vice. Brazilians will also be present at the head of great jobs in newsrooms, programmers, researchers and entrepreneurs in this area.

The inscriptions can be made at the event site: The number of places is limited to 250 people. The value of the inscriptions is R $ 250 for professionals and R $ 180 for university students, until November 5. As of that date, if there are still vacancies, the value goes to R $ 325 for professionals and R $ 220 for students.

The conference has the collaboration of the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation (FAAP) and the support of Abraji, La Nación Data, the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas and the Python Software Foundation.
