Call for proposals for the 2nd Open Data Dialog

November 18-19, 2013, Berlin

Announcement„Open data has the potential to transform society, government and the economy, from how we travel to work to how we decide to vote,“ declared Rufus Pollock, co-founder of Open Knowledge Foundation, at the 1st International Open Data Dialog, which took place in December 2012 in Berlin.

With this year’s motto THINK OPEN, THINK BUSINESS the Dialog emphasizes the high potential of Open Data for businesses. The dialog likes to challenge our view that open data is not only a matter for administration, but also for enterprises, NGOs and science. No one will be able to take this step on his own. Administrations, economies, and societies must come together to open up the potential of data.

As in the past year, we invite all free thinkers from industry, civil society, government and research institutes to join the dialog and to share your ideas and projects with other open data enthusiasts. We invite you to give your ideas, approaches or results for example on, but not excluding: Opening, transforming or visualizing data – Data research or journalism – Data to support transparency and participation – Open data platforms and tools – Data-intensive services and applications – Secure integration of open, closed and private data – Business cases and legal settings.

We are seeking proposals for presentations, demonstrations, workshops and tutorials for the 2nd Open Data Dialog, November 18-19, 2013.
