This years theme is Data Stories:
Stories about data – What can be learned from our own failures and successes in dealing with data?
Telling stories with data – The role of data in the daily work for many professionals. How are data being used in creative and compelling ways to tell a clear story, whether to raise awareness, change behaviour, or organize action?
Connected conversations – What are the challenges and strategies of working with data in various silos – professional, institutional, national? How can we facilitate conversation between communities that have similar challenges, but who may not interact in daily work?
We are data – seeing the people behind the data – Everyone who uses connected devices are generating massive amounts of data as we move through our daily lives. What are the personal, ethical, and practical implications of living in a culture that commoditizes our every digital move?
