Academic Workshops

Two parallel one-day academic workshops are organized during the first conference day of MyData 2017. The workshops will take place on August 30th in Tallinn, Estonia, at the conference venue (Tallinn University).

Both workshops have a distinct thematic focus: Our data futures  and Legal and Technical Approaches to MyData (see also below). While the workshops have their own calls for abstracts/papers, they are thematically linked to the non-academic parts of the MyData 2017 conference. You can see a draft of the programme structure as well as descriptions of the topic tracks of the whole conference here.

Participation in the workshops is subject to an accepted abstract or paper. The workshops have their own submission guidelines, please refer to the individual workshop pages for more information. Workshops participants are expected to register for the MyData 2017 conference and will be able to benefit from its entire programme. Please refer to the conference registration page for details. Accepted workshops participants will be included in the presenter quota.
