Call For Proposals Now Open – A Future For Good: How Public Data Helps Us Create Resiliency and Equity for All

Online
Annual Conference

APDU is welcoming proposals for the Data Symposium 2022, A Future For Good: How Public Data Helps Us Create Resiliency and Equity for All, (May 3 – 4, 2022). With economic, public health, and governance challenges arising from COVID-19 and political polarization, trustworthy public data is vital to open and honest policy debates. APDU is interested in proposals with specific state and local examples.

Show us how you are using data to measure community resilience. Tell us how you are thinking of these issues:

  • Novel uses of public data to understand the shifting American landscape;
  • Ways that researchers and advocates are ensuring that public data is accurate and equitable;
  • How public data can help restore trust in institutions;
  • How to rebuild trust in public data; or
  • Other related and relevant topics.

Proposals can be for a single presentation or panel, whether based on a particular project, data practice, or formal paper. You may submit ideas for a single presentation or a full panel (three presenters, plus a moderator). However, it is possible that we will accept portions of panel submissions to combine with other presenters. Submissions will be evaluated on the quality of work, relevance to APDU Conference attendees, uniqueness of topic and presenter, and thematic fit.

Deadline: 5:00 PM ET, Friday, February 11th, 2022

Please submit your proposal using the Survey Monkey collection window. Proposals can be submitted by members or non-members but all presenters in a panel must register for the conference (full conference registration comes with a free APDU membership).

Proposers will be notified of our decision by early March.
