Hello Bill,

A quick answer regarding your query about OKFestival - this September,
we're combining OKCon and OGDCamp for the week-long event in Helsinki, but
there will still be a great deal of specific government-focused programming
that I believe you'll be interested in. For example, one of the confirmed
Topic Streams of 2012 is Open Government Data, and another is Open City

In our last Call for Proposals to be released next Monday May 14th, we'll
be asking for submissions specifically focused on these and other Topic
Streams. Since we've made it a priority to release over 2/3 of the week's
programming to festival participants this year [1], we will finalise the
week's schedule in June after these last submissions are received.

If you have any further questions for the OKFestival Organising Team, feel
free to email us directly at info at okfestival.org. In the meantime, we look
forward to seeing you and other open government enthusiasts in Helsinki!

I've been looking at the online plans for the OKFestival and
OpenGovernmentData camp in Helsinki in September.   Will the
OpenGovernmentData camp part of the OKFestival be run like a true
barcamp?  Or will there also be some pre-planned presentation sessions
etc?  Do the OKFestival calls for proposals also apply to the OGDcamp

Hoping I will be able to make it - looks like it will be a great event.
