The proposed workshop will bring together open government data experts from around the world -- including government representatives, policymakers, lawyers, technologists, academics, advocates, citizens, journalists and reusers.
It will aim to:
- build consensus around key legal, technical and policy issues related to opening up government information
- strengthen the diverse community of people working on different aspects of opening up official data around the world -- from both inside and outside government
- encourage the exchange of experiences and expertise between those involved in leading open government data initiatives in different countries
Presentations will be kept to a minimum -- with only a handful of very short talks and
announcements from key players. The focus of the workshop will be on productive
discussion, work on a set of principles and documentation, and some work on prototyping
applications and services built on open government data.
