The journalist of VRT (the Belgian public broadcaster) Majd Khalifeh, expert in how there can be verification, processing and use of user generated content, will analyze how large public broadcasters can use such material. A special reference will be made to material being produced in extreme cases, such as in war zones, or regarding terrorist groups.

Odille Duperry, experienced journalist of Agence France-Presse, third largest news agency in the world, and AFP bureau chief in Athens, will focus on the selection of trustworthy sources for the creation of valid pieces of news, whereas she will present examples of major cases of false spread of information throughout her long career.
