               Uses of Open Data Within Government
                   for Innovation and Efficiency

                          Samos, Greece

                      30 June - 1 July 2014

You are warmly invited to participate in the first of a series of 
workshops being organised during this year and next by the Share-PSI 2.0 
Thematic Network [1]. Partners from 25 countries are working on issues 
surrounding the implementation of the European Commission's revised PSI 
Directive and this will feed into the W3C Data on the Web Best Practices 
Working Group [2].

We're beginning with "Uses of Open Data Within Government for Innovation 
and Efficiency" [3] - i.e. we're looking for cases where opening data 
has made it easier for government departments (local or national) to do 
their job better. What worked? What didn't work? What lessons can you 
share with others? What would most help you benefit from other people's 

The workshop is taking place as part of the 5th Samos Summit on 
ICT-Enabled Governance [4] which means participants can look forward to 
spending time on a beautiful island in the Aegean sea, formerly the home 
of Pythagoras.

Entry is by position paper which should not be a full academic paper, 
rather, a short description of what you'd like to talk about.

Deadline for submissions: 13 April
Notification of acceptance: 1 May
