2015 Convention

Register now for 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 conference partner.


The theme for the Silicon Valley conference is 3-D: Digital, Diversity, Disruption.


The conference will open with an evening reception Friday, Oct. 16, at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center. Join your colleagues under beautiful October skies for a taste of California wine and music and an intimate conversation with David Kelley. A creator of the Apple mouse and founder of the groundbreaking d.school at Stanford, Kelley will share his thoughts on how each of us can find joy in our creative endeavors.


We will have conference sessions Saturday, Oct. 17, and Sunday, Oct. 18, at the Li Ka Shing Center, part of the Stanford Medical School. The conference hotel is the Sheraton Palo Alto at 625 El Camino Real. 


The lively and topical sessions will focus on:

  • Digital transformation and the innovative use of technology in the newsroom.
  • Diversity in the newsroom and in reaching new audiences.
  • First Amendment and access issues.
  • Newsroom leadership.

APPM will focus on using analytics and research to better utilize visual journalism, as well as innovative approaches to increase the impact of visual reporting.

Other highlights: 

  • We will celebrate the winners of the ASNE Awards and APME Journalism Excellence Awards at a Saturday luncheon. On Sunday, we will meet again for a special lunch. Tickets to both lunches can be purchased when you register.
  • The opening reception will also include an auction at the alumni center. The silent and live auctions will offer one-of-a-kind items, such as sports tickets, vacation retreats, jewelry, autographed books and much more. 
  • The conference will feature high-profile speakers from the tech and journalism industries.
