Yes it would be great if one of us could make it. Alek Tarkowski asked me
if I could come but unfortunately Europeana organises a gathering of
aggregators during those two days in Berlin. He would like to have a talk
about legal and technical issues when it comes to opening up culture data.
Sam also can't make it. Is anybody of you interested in going? They can pay
for travel and accommodation.

> We are pleased to announce Poland's first conference on the idea of
> openGLAM - a new way of thinking about the mission of cultural
> institutions and the use of their resources - at the Zachęta National
> Gallery of Art on 11-12 October 2013.
> We are waiting through 31 August for suggestions of sessions,
> workshops, and presentations to draw up the conference programme
> together. We are already registering conference participants.
> The main purpose of the conference is to present outstanding examples
> of implemented initiatives as well as to discuss the benefits - and
> challenges - of openness. Special emphasis will be on educational and
> regulatory issues. openGLAM 2013 will be an opportunity for
> open-culture activists to meet persons and institutions willing to
> proceed in this direction. We hope it will provide a great forum for
> sharing knowledge and experiences.
> openGLAM 2013 is an initiative addressed primarily at staff members of
> cultural and heritage institutions, increasingly often referred to as
> the 'GLAM' (galleries - libraries - archives - museums) sector. It

> institutions and running projects that use their resources:
> researchers, culture animators, authors, NGO activists.
> Interested persons and/or organisations are asked to submit programme
> proposals in three categories:
> + sessions or workshops: please submit title, abstract, and proposed
> participations of a session/workshop 90-120 minutes long;
> + presentations: please submit title and abstract of a presentation up
> to 20 minutes long
> + poster-session presentations: please submit title and abstract of a
> presentation up to 20 minutes long, accompanied by a poster or other
> form of visual presentation
> We are also open to other creative ideas.
> The main spoken language of the conference is Polish, but we are about
> to provide symultaneus translation to English.
