The Brazilian Association for Investigative Journalism (Abraji) invites journalists and students to participate in the 5th International Congress on Investigative Journalism, from July 29-31, 2010, in São Paulo.

This year's congress will focus on coverage of elections, natural disasters, and sports journalism (with emphasis on the World Cup and the Olympics), Abraji says. It will also feature lectures and courses about the fundamentals of reporting, coverage of organized crime, Computer-Assisted Reporting, and investigation of public expenditures. The panelists will include leading Brazilian journalists and a dozen foreign colleagues.

The congress will take place at Anhembi Morumbi University. Registration is open until the end of May. See Abraji's site for details.
