Using Open Data Networking Event
Wednesday, June 20, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CEST)
Brussels is alive in the middle of June with workshops, meetings and conferences building up to the Digital Agenda Assembly on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd. This reception provides an occasion for participants in those meetings to meet informally and exchange ideas and experiences.
The Using Open Data Networking Event is being organized specifically as a bridge between:
- the W3C/Crossover Using Open Data workshop;
- the SEMIC 2012 - Semantic Interoperability Conference 2012;
- and, of course, the 2nd Digital Agenda Assembly itself.
The event is sponsored by PwC EU Services who support the European Commission's work in a variety of areas but in this context the specific link is with the SEMIC conference.
This will be a simple drinks reception that will enable you to meet people with common interests and perhaps arrange to then go for dinner around a BOF (Birds of a Feather) table (dinner is not part of the reception itself).
Attendance is open to participants in the events listed above who will have received a specific invitation. Numbers are strictly limited so it is important that you register.
