Data.gov and the World Bank are joining forces to sponsor the second International Open Government Data Conference (IOGDC) to be held on July 10-12, 2012, in Washington D.C. at the World Bank Headquarters at 1818 H Street NW. The IOGDC will gather policymakers, developers, and others with a keen interest in open government data to share lessons learned, stimulate new ideas, and demonstrate the power of democratizing data.

The IOGDC will bring together the world's foremost experts on open government data. From policy to technology, IOGDC promises to be filled with thoughtful, dynamic discussion around the historic opportunity presented by open government data to foster collaboration, transparency, and interactive public participation. 

The theme of the event, “Putting Data to Work,” is organized into two main tracks: policy and technology.

Attendance is free, but preregistration is required. A live webcast will be available for those unable to attend in person.

Join us in person, follow the live webcast, and follow @usdatagov along on Twitter via #IOGDC.
