Data Times conference @ITU
March 19 - March 20
The program for the conference Data Times: Immediacies, Lifecycles, Forgettings has just been launched. Find it here.
Big data’s time is in the here and now, which is not to say that big data has no past. Collecting, archiving and storing data are acts that seek to hold on to elusive happenings of yesterday and yesteryear. Private businesses and public sector institutions are currently intensely busy with understanding and experimenting with data. More data (and more diverse data sources) make their ways into meeting rooms in the hope that societal or company futures can somehow be predicted.
For four years members of the Data as Relation project have conducted research into the new roles given to data in Danish public sector institutions and related organizations. Tax administrations, NGOs, and municipalities expend a considerable amount of energy and effort ensuring that data, can be put to good use in the future
During this conference, we hope to engage participants in discussion and develop a better understanding of different ways of organizing temporalities in data. We look forward to welcoming you at the IT University of Copenhagen for two days concerning the immediacies, lifecycles and forgettings imbricated in data work.
Remember to sign up as soon as possible and no later than March 2nd here.
