IODC is the essential meeting point for the global community to debate and study the future of open data.

- Policy makers and Public Sector Information (PSI) holders
- Private companies, startups and freelancers
- Activists and NGO’s
- Data journalism
- Representatives of civil society from all over the world.
The differentiating nature of the event is that it gathers countries from the northern and southern hemispheres to define tendencies and establish global policies of collaboration, with the objective of stimulating the progress of open data globally.
Titled “Global goals, local impact” the fourth IODC will reconvene our expanding community to showcase successes, confront shared challenges, and help us ensure that our vision and our diverse initiatives continue to coordinate effectively.
Prior to the official opening of the IODC 2016, October 6-7, a large number of preconference meetings will be held in Madrid on October 3, 4 and 5 by government and civil society open data groups.
As a global event, the conference will provide significant learning and a space for networking and collaboration for all national and international participants in government, private sector and civil society, who will learn from the best international Open Data experts.
The Global Open Data community will be not only invited, but truly encouraged to send their contributions for the agenda of the three main tracks in which the event is organized: Impact, Sharing and Action.
In addition to our goals to convene an event that seeks to foster knowledge development and intellectual exchange, IODC organizers are working towards creating an inclusive, innovative, and empowering event. At IODC 2016, we will also strive for the greatest possible level of gender balance, regional diversity, and inclusion of all voices.
