This time the community-run conference will be in Portland, Oregon, USA on 2nd and 3rd of May 2017. It will feature stories about data sharing and data analysis from science, journalism, government, and open source. We want to bring together data makers/doers/hackers from backgrounds like science, journalism, open go

csv,conf is a non-profit community conference run by people who love data and sharing knowledge. This isn’t just a conference about spreadsheets. CSV Conference is a conference about data sharing and data tools. We are curating content about advancing the art of data collaboration, from putting your data on GitHub to producing meaningful insight by running large scale distributed processing on a cluster.

Submit a Talk!  Talk proposals for csv,conf close Feb 15, so don’t delay, submit today! The deadline is fast approaching and we want to hear from a diverse range of voices from the data community.
