Since 1997, newspaper designers, publishers, IT professionals and editors from throughout the United States and Canada have attended sessions of the Institute of Newspaper Technology. The 2007 session of the Institute is scheduled for October 11-13, 2007. Classes will take place on campus at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
