I'm interested in any Open Data conferences which are held on a regular basis (e.g., yearly). Are there any such conferences?
- TransparencyCamp, by the Sunlight Foundation, annually since 2009.
- Open Knowledge Conference (OKCon), annually since 2005. Open data has been central since its inception - in 2012 this expanded to be the Open Knowledge Festival (OKFestival).
- Open Government Data Camp, by the Open Knowledge Foundation, annually since 2010. From 2012 the camp has been merged with the Open Knowledge Conference.
- European Open Data Week, annually since 2012.
- European Public Sector Information Platform (ePSI) Conference, annually since 2012.
- European Data Forum, focused on Linked Data, annually since 2012.
- Health Datapalooza, focused on U.S. open health data, annually since 2010
- National Day of Civic Hacking, annually since ~2010
- International Open Government Data Conference, started in 2010
- Open Data Day is an annual event since 2009
- Open Data Exchange started in 2013, and will become an annual event.
- The Computer-Assisted Reporting conference (often referred to as NICAR) is held annually by Investigative Reporters and Editors and focuses on obtaining and using open data in a journalism context.
- IEEE Big Data, a journal on big data which includes calls on open data
- OpenSym, OpenSym includes a track specifically for open data
- Open Data Science Conference began in 2015, held several times each year (i.e. 2-4) on both the east and west coasts of the U.S. as well as internationally (e.g. Kiev, Bangalore, Tokyo, etc.). Emphasis on data science but also touches on open ideas, software, and data.
(people might want to expand this community wiki)
It could make sense for this community to contribute to that wiki, rather than maintaining a separate wiki listing here, since they have a larger user base and existing listing of events.

CSV,Conf is run in conjunction with the week long Open Knowledge Festival http://okfestival.org/. What Is It About? Building Community
We want to bring together data makers/doers/hackers from backgrounds like science, journalism, open government and the wider software industry to share tools and stories. For those who love data
CSV Conf is a non-profit community conference run by some folks who really love data and sharing knowledge. If you are as passionate about data and the application it has to society then you should join us! Big and small
This isn’t a conference just about spreadsheets. We are curating content about advancing the art of data collaboration, from putting your CSV on GitHub to producing meaningful insight by running large scale distributed processing. Colophon: Why CSV?
This conference isn’t just about CSV http://data.okfn.org/doc/csv data. But we chose to call it CSV Conf because we think CSV embodies certain important qualities that set the tone for the event:
- Simplicity: CSV is incredibly simple - perhaps the simplest structured data format there is
- Openness: the CSV ‘standard’ is well-known and open - free for anyone to use
- Easy to use: CSV is widely supported - practically every spreadsheet program, relational database and programming language in existence can handle CSV in some form or other
- Hackable: CSV is text-based and therefore amenable to manipulation and access from a wide range of standard tools (including revision control systems such as git, mercurial and subversion)
- Big or small: CSV files can range from under a kilobyte to gigabytes and its line-oriented structure mean it can be incrementally processed – you do not need to read an entire file to extract a single row. Received on Thursday, 19 June 2014 09:36:02 UTC
