Call for Proposals: 2nd Open Data Dialog

November 18-19, 2013, Berlin

“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.

Sumission Deadline: July 15, 2013

Context / Objectives

Over the past decade, the Open Source Software (OSS) phenomenon has had a global impact on the way software systems and software-based services are developed, distributed and deployed. Widely acknowledged benefits of OSS include reliability, low development and maintenance costs, as well as rapid code turnover. Linux distributions, Apache and MySQL server, and Moodle LMS are, among many other examples, a testimony to its success and resilience.

Call for Papers: PLoP 2013, the International Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs

The 20th Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs

October 23–26, 2013—Allerton Park, Monticello, IL, USA

The International Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs

April 1994: Members of the small, eclectic, and informal Hillside group gathered in Ben Lomond, California, for their yearly retreat and in the redwoods that Spring hatched a plan that was PLoP 1994. In response to the criticism that by putting together such an unconventional conference they would show they didn’t know what they were doing, one of them suggested, “then let’s pretend to know.”

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, PLoP in 2013 will return to its first home, Allerton Park, and the conference program will include a variety of special events alongside the usual PLoP fare.
