International Workshop on Open Data and Applications

Welcome to IWODA2016

        Open data refers to the freely available of data. People can use the opened data without restrictions. Similar to open source, open access, and some others, Open Data aims to foster the open and the use of data, especially government data. Governments usually own, generate, and collect data. The data can be and should be opened for public use. Open Data is not a brand new concept. However, the term “Open Data” itself is a new terminology. Government around the world have launched their open-data government initiatives and their open data portals to open their data.

The scope of this workshop is only limited by the imagination of Open Data researchers.
