The Wolfram Data Summit is a unique, invitation-only gathering in Washington, DC, offering leaders of the world's great data repositories an opportunity to meet, to share insights into their work, and to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the worldwide data community.
In order to defer some of the cost for the Summit, there is a registration fee of $395 (US) this year. This includes lunch for both days, dinner Thursday evening, and, of course, coffee throughout. Attendees are responsible for their own lodging costs.
We currently plan on a full day of talks and panel discussions, along with a dinner, on September 6 and additional sessions on September 7, ending in the late afternoon.
If you need any special accommodations, please indicate. We will gladly provide accommodations under the ADA. To obtain them, you must provide your statement of need in writing no later than 60 days prior to the Summit. Written statements can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any cancellation of these services should also be made in writing no later than 30 days prior to the Summit.
Speakers, panelists, and moderators will be contacted soon about A/V requirements and other details for their sessions. A PowerPoint template or a Mathematica notebook are available for speakers creating a slide show presentation.
Opportunities to sponsor receptions, meals, and other events at the Wolfram Data Summit are still available. Interested parties should contact us at email@example.com.
Participants who wish to make literature or promotional materials available to other attendees should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will make information about all participating organizations and individuals available prior to the Wolfram Data Summit. Contact information will be shared only with other participants (with the explicit permission of each attendee).
Wolfram Research has a long history of supporting public data and computing efforts. In creating Wolfram|Alpha, we have had occasion to interact with the leaders of a remarkably broad range of data repositories, and we have identified many common challenges that confront them. It is our hope that the Wolfram Data Summit will be an important step toward fostering a new level of collaboration and cooperation among members of the worldwide data community.
