Gov 2.0 Summit Call for Participation

Call closed 11:59pm 06/01/2009 EDT.

The Gov 2.0 Summit program is being built largely by invitation, but we are reserving some presentation slots for brief (10 minute) case studies of government 2.0 in action. We are looking for projects that have used the Web as platform to drive:

  • Efficiency
  • Transparency
  • Accountability
  • Participation
  • Collaboration
  • New models of partnership between the tech community and government

You’ll be asked to include the following information for your proposal:

  • Proposed title
  • Overview and extended descriptions of the presentation: main idea, sub topics, conclusion
  • Speaker(s): expertise and summary biography

Proposals are only being considered for “high order bit” presentations; these are very brief case studies or demos of projects or concepts.

Limited speaking opportunities are also available through conference sponsorship. Contact Jessica Timmer at (206) 335-2055 or for more information.
