The conference will consist of an international seminar for academics (Thursday and Friday morning), followed by a (Dutch-speaking) symposium (Friday) for academics and professionals on the new Dutch Open Government Act (Wet open overheid). During the conference we want to connect professionals and researchers to brainstorm from different angles of expertise about what it means to have citizen-friendly information provision and data communication with governments.
We will also be hosting a special issue in Information Polity on the topic of Open Government Data for Citizen Participation. Papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in this special issue. More information here.
