Hi all,

As community steward of the ePSIplatform I'd like to invite you to the
ePSIplatform 2012 conference on March 16th in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The
theme for the conference is "Taking re-use to the next level!" (the
http://ePSIplatform.eu <http://epsiplatform.eu/> is the go to place for all
open government data and re-use news in the EU, funded by the EC)

With open data efforts now established in countries across the EU, and the
proposal for an open data strategy by the European Commission presented in
December, it is time to look at the steps ahead. Building on what we
learned, and what we've already created. The conference will of course
discuss the new European plans for open data policy, and will also (in 12
parallel sessions) explore a long list of topics: changing local policy
issues with local open data, data journalism, the internal business case
for open data, increasing a sector's effectiveness with open data (such as
international aid), data visualization,  open data for participation and
self empowerment, licensing, pan-European initiatives, PSI Directive
review, data protection and privacy, combining public data and personal
data: the Quantified Self, obstacles of PSI re-use, (financing of) 'key
registries', checks and balances: redress and compliance.

And of course plenty of time to connect and network!

Already over 170 participants from across the EU, as well as from
elsewhere, have signed up. Join us in Rotterdam in March! Participation is
free, although registration is required. You can register your
participation at: http://epsiplatform.eventbrite.com/

More information about the program and speakers is forthcoming, and will be
published at the ePSIplatform. (If you would like to speak, do get in
touch!) See

We look forward to welcoming you in Rotterdam on March 16th!
