Chartbeat Publishing                                                            

Chartbeat Publishing was built in the newsroom, with the mission of transforming the way writers, editors, and content creators interact with analytics. Our real-time technology can help your team understand what content is resonating, every moment of the day. By measuring time—how long visitors are spending reading an article, writing a comment, or watching a video—you'll always know what's holding your audience's attention. We're proud to work with almost 4,000 clients in 35 countries, including 80% of the top U.S. publishers.

We don't think it is enough to just make real-time data interesting—it has to be actionable. When an article is picking up steam, you need to think about whether it warrants a higher placement on the homepage. Where visitors aren't spending lots of time, you need to consider tweaking the content. And if social channels are driving visitors to an article, you need to know if they're recirculating to other pages on your website. Chartbeat Publishing highlights your big opportunities, so you can you turn them into major achievements.

Global Alliance for Media Innovation                                                           

The Global Alliance for Media Innovation (GAMI) is the network for innovation within the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA).

Following the launch of the Global Alliance for Media Innovation during WAN-IFRA's World Congress in June 2014, we have established a brain trust of stakeholders involved in research and innovation for news media. The core of this group is composed of pioneers, media organisations (publishers and suppliers), and academic research labs dealing with technology transfer and research programmes in Europe (Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, UK), the Americas (Brazil, USA, Canada), and Southeast Asia (Singapore, Japan).

For this reason we want to:
- KNOW what research and innovation efforts are in the works that bring potential value to the news media industry;
- CONNECT those various efforts to partners and resources so that they might reach their potential;
- SHARE the results of those initiatives with the wider news media industry hungry for more.

In its primary mission to strengthen and support the independent press, WAN-IFRA's global engagements are aimed at defending press freedom and promoting sustainable, financially viable media.

An estimated 1,189 journalists have been killed since 1992. Of these, over 700 were murdered outright and their killers have, for the most part, evaded punishment. Reporting on corruption, crime, conflict, politics and human rights has proven deadly for far too many.

Through their deaths, the right to information of hundreds of millions of citizens has been sacrificed. The world's major problems, from environmental issues to jihadist violence, cannot be processed without the work of journalists.

Freedom of information is the freedom that allows us to verify the existence of all other freedoms.

In an effort to find a lasting, global solution to violence against journalists, WAN-IFRA is backing the creation of a Special Representative of the UN Secretary General for the Safety of Journalists, who will have the political weight, the capacity to act quickly, and the legitimacy to coordinate with all UN bodies to implement change. Change that saves lives and keeps information flowing, for everyone.

Join WAN-IFRA and media worldwide in supporting the campaign to create this role at the heart of the UN system.
