International Open Government Data Conference
This week, we’ll be participating in the 2012 International Open Government Data Conference, to be held at the World Bank’s headquarters in Washington. On Wednesday, Nathaniel Heller of Global Integrity and Stephen Davenport of Development Gateway will be part of a panel discussion on “Engagement around Open Data,” so you can expect to hear more about the plans for the Hub there (Preston Auditorium, July 11, 1:00-2:30 pm). Meanwhile, on Tuesday and Wednesday, both Global Integrity and Development Gateway will have booths in the exhibition area (Atrium of the World Bank’s MC Building), so swing by if you’re at the event. The conference is co-sponsored by the U.S. General Services Administration, Data.gov, the World Bank Open Data Initiative, and the Open Development Technology Alliance. If you can’t make it in person, check out the live blog and webstream starting tomorrow (July 10), and follow along on Twitter via #IOGDC and @usdata.gov. We’re looking forward to hearing from a huge range of organizations and inspiring individuals working on the issues near and dear to the OpenGov Hub’s interests.
