Information to get the most out of the Making Data Work Online Conference

Why an online conference?

The Making Data Work Online Conference provides an ongoing forum for exploring the latest issues, without the expense or inconvenience of travel. It's our way of bringing a rich discussion of the Making Data Work landscape to your desktop and keeping the conversation alive throughout the year.

How does it work?

In an online conference, participants log on and attend sessions, enter into discussions with other participants and presenters using the live text chat, and are able to pose questions and interact with people from all over the world. It has a similar structure to a physical conference, except that you hear the speakers discuss topics and watch their slide presentations via your computer from the convenience of your office or home. You'll take breaks between sessions and enjoy lively chat conversations with your fellow attendees.
