http://g0v.tw is arguably the most popular civic tech organization on the
planet. When I spoke in Taiwan, I noted that they had almost as many
Facebook and Twitter followers at the Sunlight Foundation, Code for America
and mySociety combined ... and of course a much smaller population base.
While registration is closed, I expect like past years, many sessions will
be available on-demand. They have a great speakers list.

Fellow civic hackers,
*TLDR: May 14-15, Taipei. 50 Speakers from 16 Countries. Conf + Unconf.
Keynote Speakers: Felipe Heusser, **Clay Shirky.*
Registration is open until April 15: http://summit.g0v.tw/2016/
*Fork and Merge*
"Openness", "Transparency" and "Participation" have become popular
keywords. The global civic tech communities are experimenting with mass
participation, new media forms and making better use of data, which is
essentially "forking" the government like an open source movement. We
would like to see how these processes and practices can be sustainably
"merged" into daily governance, as well as having interdisciplinary
conversation about these changes and impacts.
You are invited to join one of the most vibrant civic hacking community for
a 2-day conference + unconference May 14-15 in Taipei, Taiwan. Please find
the full program in the link above.
About g0v summit 2016
Returning for a second year after 2014, the g0v Summit 2016 will again
invite the global civic tech community to share their experiences for
collaboration between public servants, technologists, and NGO workers.
g0v summit 2016 is set to be held on May 14-15, 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. 750
participants are expected to attend the conference. Open Government, Open
Data, and civic tech engagement in civil movements are expected to be
covered in the programmes.
g0v.tw is a civic tech community in Taiwan since 2012 with deep open-source
roots. With 1,000+ contributors through 40+ hackathons, it is recognized as
one of the largest group in the global civic tech community. The community
focuses on building tools for better information disclosure, engagement,
and online democracy, advocating government transparency through the power
of information technology.
Through the years, the g0v community stimulated the progress of open
government, open data, civic participation, and new media in Taiwan. Today
the open community is still one of the main driving force for grass root
civic movements, through interdisciplinary collaboration.
