The Open-data Cities Conference

The Open-data Cities Conference – in association with Kasabi – will take place in Brighton and Hove on Friday, April 20 2012, at the Brighton Dome Corn Exchange.

The high-profile conference – the first of its kind in the United Kingdom – will focus on how publicly-funded organisations can engage with citizens to build more creative, prosperous and accountable communities.

It will be attended by more than 200 people who believe the value of public data is greatest when it is freely and openly shared. They will be leaders from the public sector, arts and cultural organisations, and creative and digital industries.

Speakers will inspire discussions about the potential impact of open data in four specific areas:

  • improvement in democratically-accountable public services;
  • enhancement of artistic and cultural experiences;
  • development of new technologies, including the semantic web;
  • innovation in media industries, including newspapers and television.

The one-day conference will also include workshops about issues relating to each of the areas.

Tickets cost £149 (+VAT). Early Bird tickets are still available at £100 (+VAT).
