White House Office of Science and Technology Policy joins first-ever open data policy conference on September 10, alongside Congressional leaders


 

WASHINGTON, DC (September 5, 2013) -- The Data Transparency Coalition announced today that Nick Sinai, U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), will deliver the executive keynote address at the Data Transparency 2013 conference on Tuesday, September 10. Along with tech industry representatives and transparency advocates, Data Transparency 2013 will feature executive and legislative branch leaders from both parties who share a commitment to opening the U.S. government's data.
 
A former venture capitalist, Nick Sinai has become one of the federal government's foremost advocates for stimulating innovation through open data. In his role as U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer, Sinai helps to lead the implementation of President Obama's Open Data Policy. The policy establishes a landmark definition for open data and requires that all newly generated government data be made available in accessible, machine-readable formats.

Data Transparency 2013 will be the nation’s first public conference dedicated to open data policy. Attendees representing over 28 federal agencies, 60 private-sector companies, and 40 transparency-oriented nonprofits will examine the impact of open data on government, explore open data business opportunities, and collaborate a common open data agenda.

Members of the media are invited to attend and should contact Zack Pesavento at zack.pesavento@datacoalition.org for complimentary registration. Public registration and a full schedule of events are available at http://www.datatransparency2013.org.
