okconlogoOpen Knowledge Conference 2013 is coming up, and Early Bird tickets are available until 23 June at 15% off.

From the OKCon.org website: “The world’s leading open data and open knowledge event, OKCon is the latest in an annual series run since 2005. Last year’s installment in Helsinki had more than 1000 participants from over 50 countries and was the largest event of its kind to date. Previous speakers have included inventor of the World Wide Web Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Hans Rosling of Gapminder, Brewster Kahle of the Internet Archive, Ellen Miller of the Sunlight Foundation and other major figures in the open knowledge community.”

OKCon will take place in Geneva on 16th – 18th September 2013, at Geneva’s International Conference Center. See more at: http://okcon.org/2013/06/07/opendata-ch-welcomes-you-to-okcon-in-geneva

Why would you want to attend OKCon?

“In the last few years we’ve seen government open data initiatives grow from a handful to hundreds, and we’ve seen open data become important in areas such as research, culture and international development. This event will explore how open data is not only expanding geographically but also touching new sectors and new areas. How should governments and international institutions such as the UN react to these changes? How should business take advantage of new opportunities and contribute to the open data economy? How do citizens and civil society organizations turn data into accountability and into change?”
