April 20th, 2018
We are very happy to announce that the 2018 GeOnG Open Call for Suggestions is now open!
During the 2018 GeOnG Forum, we hope to engage discussions on how to tailor information management solutions to a given context, scale, phase or funding. The event will be the perfect occasion to pay particular attention to key stakes in the sector such as responsible data practices, capacity-building, interoperability of data & systems, user-friendly and human-centered tool design, and much more. As usual, we will rely on your contributions to come up with relevant and innovative content for the 3-day forum.
To this end and for the first time, CartONG has decided to launch an Open Call for Suggestions in order to gather recommendations and ideas for the program of this year’s edition. By doing so, we also hope to encourage people to volunteer to present their own session as well as to foster collaboration in-between organizations and individual actors.
What kind of content may I suggest?
Anything you deem relevant! We invite all of you to contribute to the program of the next GeOnG by sharing your suggestions, be it topics, challenges, practices or tools you would like to see discussed or presented during the event. You may also suggest names of individuals or organizations you think might be interested in the next GeOnG.
For the ones of you who already have a clearer picture of a topic you would like to present, you are strongly encourage to submit your own session proposal. Following your submission, we'll get in touch by email to discuss it further with you and to provide guidance on the content and session format as well as assistance on finding co-presenters (if applicable). Please remember that private sector actors are welcome to come & present their solutions as sponsors to the conference (please email us for more information on sponsoring).
What are the formats of the sessions at the GeOnG?
How may I submit my recommendations?
Please use our online form to send us your recommendations by June 20th, 2018. All submissions will be reviewed by the 2018 GeOnG Programming Committee, composed of CartONG members & partners. If you have any questions, feel free to also email Martin & Nina before submitting the form.
Thank you for your support! We are very much looking forward to receiving your suggestions.
