Welcome, everyone, to Uncovering Asia: The Second Asian Investigative Journalism Conference. From September 23 to 25, we are bringing together top investigative reporters, data journalists, and media law and security experts from across Asia and around the world.

Below you will find more than 60 sessions and special events. There are panels on digging out hidden facts online, the environment, business, and how to fund your project; seminars on security and tracking dirty money; data journalism workshops by the best in the business; and much more.

You can follow us on Twitter at #IJAsia16. On behalf of your hosts — the Global Investigative Journalism Network, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, and the Centre for Investigative Journalism, Nepal, we wish you a big hello! Namaste!
