Topics may include (but are not limited to):
- The role of the library in providing access to open data and support to citizens.
- Standards and best practices for open data
- Open policy making and transparency

Papers presenting innovative projects, experience, initiatives or services with a strong collaborative cross-border or international dimension would also be appreciated.
