Join us for our annual community-driven civic tech conference. Participants come to learn, network and collaborate around public interest technology, data and design in New York City. With programming support from the 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.

This year we are back at CUNY School of Law on March 18th, 2023 to commemorate the 13th anniversary of international Open Data Day, the 11th anniversary of the City’s transformative Open Data Law, and conclude NYC Open Data Week.

There will be trainings, workshops, demos, talks, presentations, and office hours with NYC agencies on topics like data literacy, privacy, smart cities, open government, service design, and civic engagement. Our goal is to equip YOU with tools and information that support your efforts to build a better civic society for all New Yorkers.

Thank you 2023 sponsors!

The following mission-aligned organizations are helping us cover conference costs and enabling us to come together in 2023. 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.
