g0v summit (Taiwan) > Open call for papers

The g0v summit is a biennial event which focuses on open government, open source collaboration and civic participation. It was established in 2014 by the g0v community. The past two summits have gathered speakers from 19 countries and more than 2,000 local and international participants. The summit is run by volunteers, and it itself is a huge collaborative project of the community. We aim to build an open environment for everyone. Volunteers will help write online shared notes, make livestreaming videos, and do realtime translation, all of these are released under open licenses. Besides formal sessions, we emphasize on “unconference”, which enables participants to host sessions and organize their own summit. As part of the tradition in open source events, the summit always ends with lightening talks when everyone can share their projects on the stage.

This year, the organisers strive to make the Summit an open platform for sharing and brainstorming ideas and projects. They hope that engineers and researchers, activists and creators, keep changing our society through technology, expertise, and the power of collaboration. If you have something to share that fits the topics of the Summit, the organisers sincerely invite you to submit your proposal and to become a contributor.

The topics can be for instance: Collaboration between government, corporations and civil society, Disability, healthcare & welfare, Education, autodidacticism, learning with others and Art & design for social change & reimagining the future etc. 

If you are based outside Taiwan, you are eligible to apply for a travel stipend for transportation and accomodation. If you already have a sponsor, they will be listed as an official sponsor of g0v Summit.
