The International Open Data Conference will take place in Madrid from 6-7th October 2016. Two of Publish What You Fund’s projects will be running sessions and welcome participation from those attending the conference.

In advance of the main conference, the Joined-up Data project is also running a Data Standards Day on Wednesday 5th October from 12.00-16.30. The aim of this day is to provide a space for groups that are developing and implementing technical standards for open data to work on specific standards, join the dots between different efforts, and reflect on shared challenges and opportunities.
