This event has concluded. 

The International Open Data Conference, or IODC, will take place on 6 and 7 October and is a meeting point for the global community to debate and study the future of open data. Pre-conference events will run from 3 October to 5 October. 

The conference aims to build stronger relationships between open data initiatives from the different governments and establish a dialogue between policymakers and public sector information (PSI) holders; private companies, startups and freelancers; activists and NGOs; and data journalists.

Titled “Global Goals, Local Impact,” the fourth IODC gathers countries from the northern and southern hemispheres to define tendencies and establish global policies of collaboration, with the objective of stimulating the progress of open data globally. It will reconvene an expanding community to showcase successes, confront shared challenges, and help ensure that our vision and our diverse initiatives continue to coordinate effectively.
