Not cheap, but could be worth a journalist's day in the suburbs of Northern Virginia.


APDU 2006 Annual Conference

Thu., October 5 – Fri., October 6, 2006
at the Embassy Suites Hotel
in Alexandria, Virginia

The annual APDU conference provides a forum for colleagues to discuss
data and public policy issues, keep up with new technologies, and provide
input into federal, state, and local data activities. In plenary sessions,
APDU 2006 attendees will hear from noted speakers on a variety of critical
strategic, technical and policy topics.

2006 Theme — “Navigating Rivers of Data”

Communication among data producers, users, and intermediaries is the
most effective way to guide the development, expansion, and preservation
of data products. In the past year, government data have been important
for providing information to the public, informing policy and spurring
investment at the local level. Join APDU this year to learn about and
discuss issues related to public data.

For session titles, abstracts, and speakers, see the preliminary
. Also, don't overlook the opportunities to network with other
public data users and statistical agency officials attending.

Conference planning is well underway, but if you have a suggestion for
speakers for this year or a topic you would like considered for the future,
contact program co-chairs Lisa Neidert or Leonard
Gaines by phone or email.
