The 2012 Annual ALGIM Conference is just under two weeks away, with all speakers now confirmed for this highly anticipated event. Registrations for the 2012 Annual ALGIM Conference close 5pm Wednesday 7 November 2012.
This year, Conference speakers will cover 5 key topics. Two of these topics are Mobility and Open Data (you can find out more about the Conference other three topics – Citizen Engagement, Shared Services / Collaboration and Cloud – via the ALGIM website.)
Darren Besgrove (Marketing Director, Blinkmobile Interactive) will address delegates with his presentation “Mobility Platforms and the User-Interaction Oriented Revolution”. Darren will challenge traditional systems-oriented apps thinking for mobility with the alternative of a flexible, future-ready view of the world - the Interaction-oriented Architecture.
As mentioned in a previous email, Damien Toman (Director, ICT Training and Consulting International Ltd) will present the 2012 ALGIM white paper on Mobility. You can find out more about this white paper here.
Following these presentations, ALGIM Executive member Mike Foley (Head of Information Services, Auckland City Council) will facilitate a panel discussion with Tony Krzyzewski (Kaon Technologies Ltd), Darren Besgrove (BlinkMobile Interactive), Damien Toman (ICT Training and Consulting International Ltd) and Paul Brislen (TUANZ)
Alison Stringer (Programme Advisor, NZ Open Government Information & Data Programme, Land Information New Zealand - LINZ), Keitha Booth (Programme Leader, NZ Open Government Information & Data Programme, LINZ) and Julian Carver (Establishment Chief Information Officer, Christchurch Earthquake Recover Authority – CERA) will cover the topic of Open Data.
Alison Stringer and Keitha Booth will talk about the benefits and challenges of opening up government data for re-use, and relate the 2012 Olympics experience to New Zealand’s Open Government Information and Data programme in their presentation “Open Olympic Data - what can New Zealand learn from the Games?” Their presentation aims to make government-held public data more widely available so that others (including government itself) can reuse it for economic, social, transparency, efficiency and environmental gains.
Julian Carver’s presentation “A City to Rebuild – Open Data Sharing for the Canterbury Earthquake” will discuss questions such as ·
- How did government policy and guidance on open data contribute? ·
- How did the agencies involved leverage open standards and new technologies to share data more effectively? ·
- How did they achieve this level of collaborative data sharing while managing commercial sensitivity, confidentiality, and privacy?
His presentation will also explore how local government agencies in other regions could apply lessons learned from the earthquake recovery.
Following these presentations, Gill Lawrence (Waikato Regional Council) will facilitate an interactive panel discussion with Alison Stringer (LINZ), Julian Carver (CERA) and Jos Creese (Hampshire County Council, United Kingdom).
