Open government data: what are the legal issues? How can we make data legally open?
How can we make data technically open? What do we mean by raw data? Best practices and horror stories?

We’ve opened up some data, now what? Competitions, events and prototypes.

MEASURING THE IMPACT OF OPEN DATA
There have been a lot of posts on the open government data mailing list recently about evidence on the impact of open data; this session would give researchers, policy makers and others the chance to discuss existing measurement of open data impacts – and to explore shared agendas for tracking impact in future
EMPOWERING NON-TECHNICAL USERS AND RE-USERS OF DATA
A lot of the focus so far of the camp looks to be on technical and legal aspects of openning government data. This session would explore different patterns of data use: from community activism, to use of data inside and between levels of government – and would explore what support non-technical end-users need (in terms of skills; capacity building and tools-chains/technical infrastructures) to make the most of open government data.
OPEN GOVERNANCE DATA – DATA FROM THE GRASS-ROOTS UP
Linked to this blog post – exploring how the creation of data of relevance of citizens and states is happening through open data approaches – and what implications this has for how open government/governance data infrastructures should be developed, and for what capacity building programmes of action may be required.
OPEN DATA FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The World Bank has opened their data and launched an apps for development contest . At the same time, several (N)GOs are opening data as well, for instance in the context of IATI. This session wants to bring together users, developers and data managers, to develop innovative applications demonstrating ways to make open data work for international development.
OPEN DATA IN LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES
Our intention is to present the work carried out by the Web Foundation and CTIC CT to Assess Potential of Creating Open Government Data Initiatives in Low and Middle Income Countries and to create discussion around some topics such as: * Are low and middle income countries ready for an OGD initiative * What is needed? * How much of what we know from existing initiatives in other countries is applicable?
