With programming support from NYC’s Open Data Team at the NYC Office of Technology and Innovation, our conference convenes city officials, technologists, designers, data analysts, and community members around open data, civic technology, and service design in New York City.

We will be back at CUNY School of Law on March 23rd, 2024, to commemorate the 14th anniversary of International Open Data Day, the 12th anniversary of the City’s transformative Open Data Law, and celebrate the conclusion of NYC’s EIGHTH Open Data Week.

Join us for panels, workshops, demos, talks, presentations, and office hours with City agencies and community groups, on topics such as digital inclusion, service design and delivery, digital literacy, open data and data standards, and civic engagement.

Thank you 2024 sponsors!

The following mission-aligned organizations are helping us cover conference costs and enable us to meet in 2024. Thank you!

Reinvent Albany advocates for transparent and accountable New York State government and increased transparency in New York City. We work to strengthen the Freedom of Information Law and put government information online, especially spending, contracting and budget information and we are vocal advocates for open data laws and practices. We also advocate for more accountable and better governed state authorities, including the MTA. We also work for transparent business subsidies and economic development spending rooted in facts and careful analysis. We seek to create a state government that is responsible, responsive and above board and thus we fight for public integrity measures and against laws and practices that increase the risk of corruption and favor the few and well connected over the public interest.
