Data Summits focus on open, collaborative, community development, integration & implementation, maintenance and exchange of data and data standards. Access, overall connectivity, data quality and political factors that drive education systems and technology are also discussed.
All General and Concurrent Summit Sessions and events are open to all registered attendees and dress code is business casual. Transparent collaboration, engaging discussions, awareness of technical resources and best practices, identification of emerging technologies, new business contacts, & tips from experts of leading community organizations can be expected.
Note that General Sessions are presented in typical conference format in which featured speakers present on a certain topic followed by brief Q&A; while Concurrent Sessions follow a more informal workshop format in which group members roll up their sleeves, discuss and interact in more detail in order to advance the group activities and maximize in-person convening time.
Sessions at the Fall 2013 Data Summit will be held on the following efforts and topics. Please check the PESC website for program and agenda updates.
