The Government of Canada, through the International Development Research Centre and other partners, will host the 3rd International Open Data Conference (IODC) in Ottawa from May 27-29, 2015. This conference will gather national and international experts to discuss and share best practices about the future challenges and opportunities of open data. This conference plans to focus on issues that matter to the open data community in Canada and around the world, and the best way to do this is to get input from open data communities like CKX.

The conference organizers want your help in setting the agenda and designing the program for the IODC and will host this Jam Session focusing on some of the key themes of the upcoming conference: What are the top issues and concerns among Canadian open data users? How can Canadian jurisdictions work better together to build a truly pan-Canadian open data community? What are the challenges and opportunities of partnering with open data efforts in developing countries? How can Canada show leadership in open data?

Join some of the organizers of the IODC and contribute your voice to shaping this international event!
