Open Government Miniconf -- Tuesday 29 January 2013
9am to 5:20pm
The Open Government miniconf will explore open government around the country. This ticket type also includes Tim Berners-Lee's keynote on Thursday 31 January 2013. This miniconf will look at technologies, policies and projects around the following themes:
- Transparency - open data and the growing data and policy visualisation movement, supporting public and private innovation
- Citizen centric service delivery - building services for people who don't (and shouldn't have to) care about government, enabling self service through digital services, online customer support and trying to get a cohesive whole of government approach
- Participatory democracy - broad citizen involvement in the policy and process of government
- Civic hacking - citizens and the community filling the gaps and being awesome
Please check out the wiki page where we are putting together a paper and strategy for our community ideas about open gov for 2013 at http://lca2013.linux.org.au/wiki/Miniconfs/OpenGovernment
