Key contributors include BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones on the digital future, broadcasting analyst Tim Gardam on safeguarding values and Clarence Mitchell on the inside story of the McCannâ€™s and the media. Plus major sessions on digital convergence, new media ethics and new initiatives in faith broadcasting. And Labib Madanat comes to us direct from Gaza with a unique experience of working in one of the world’s most difficult places.
