PdF France: full program and updates

BY Antonella Napolitano | Tuesday, November 29 2011

PdF France is just a week away and the full program is online!
The conference will explore how technology is changing politics in a crucial moment for the country: during the day speakers will engage in conversation on the role of the web in political campaigns as well as on the disruptive power of open data for local and national government. 

The most innovative French voices in this field will be also joined by a few fellows from abroad in order to create a more open and wider conversation.

Kevin Haurswirth  (@KevinHauswirth) is the first Director of Social Media of the city of Chicago and  He is charged with developing programs that facilitate conversations with the public and ensure that city government is transparent, accountable and accessible.  

Francisco Polo (@franciscopolo) is currently Country Director of Change.org Spain, after founding Actuable, a Spanish-based campaign platform that recently merged with Change.org.
 
Anthea Watson  (@antheawatson)
works in American Democratic politics in the areas of data and technology and served as project manager for the Voting Information Project, an effort to collect and standardize a nationwide database of polling locations and election information.

Also, other news and announcements will be made.
