APDU is welcoming proposals on “making sense of the new normal” using public data. With economic, public health, and governance challenges arising from COVID-19 and political polarization, trustworthy public data is vital to open and honest policy debates. APDU is interested in proposals regarding:
- Novel uses of public data to understand the shifting American landscape;
- Ways that researchers and advocates are ensuring that public data is accurate and equitable;
- How public data can help restore trust in institutions;
- How to rebuild trust in public data; or
- Other related and relevant topics.
Proposals can be for a single presentation or panel, whether based on a particular project, data practice, or formal paper. You may submit ideas for a single presentation or a full panel (three presenters, plus a moderator). However, it is possible that we will accept portions of panel submissions to combine with other presenters. Submissions will be evaluated on the quality of work, relevance to APDU Conference attendees, uniqueness of topic and presenter, and thematic fit. See more on APDU's website.
Proposal Deadline: March 26, 2021
Proposals will need to be submitted by members of APDU, and all presenters in a panel must register for the conference (full conference registration comes with a free APDU membership). Proposers will be notified of our decision by mid-April.
