Open Call for Suggestions - 2020 GeOnG Forum

Main theme of the 2020 GeOnG Forum

"People at the heart of Information Management: promoting responsible and inclusive practices."

During the 2020 GeOnG forum, we would like to explore further how Information Management technology and practices can truly be human-centered, integrating the (different) rights of people and communities in their full diversity.

We will engage in discussions on the different facets of being responsible and inclusive in relation to data, questioning the degree to which it can really be achieved and discussing the constraints that humanitarian and development organizations (will) inevitably meet in trying to achieve such a goal - and as always, exploring potential solutions.

We therefore hope to have sessions covering the following topics (the list being non-exhaustive):

  • How to better integrate vulnerable populations to the data life cycle with a focus on ensuring that the data collected is particularly representative of populations at risk of discrimination.
  • How to implement the Do No Harm approach in relation to data: simple security & protection measures and tools, streamlining of data privacy rights in programming, algorithmization of data processing, etc.
  • What is the role of the often considered less direct stakeholders of humanitarian and development data (such as civil society actors, governments, donors, etc.) so as to identify clearer pathways to share the data that should be shared for the common good and proctect the data that should clearly not be.
  • How to promote data literacy beyond NGO information management and M&E staff to facilitate data-driven decision making.
  • How to ensure that tools and solutions used and promoted by humanitarian and development organizations are also sufficiently user-friendly and inclusive (by limiting in-built biases and promoting human-centric design).
  • Beyond this theme, don't hesitate to send us any idea that you think might be relevant for the 2020 edition (about tools, methodologies, lessons learned, feedback from the field, etc.)!

How to contribute

We invite all of you to contribute to the program of the next GeOnG by submitting your own proposal for a session (format to be discussed with CartONG): you can either submit a detailed suggestion, or just an idea that we'll define together with you.

Please note that the vast majority of sessions are conducted in English at the GeOnG. Yet, we also accept ideas for sessions to be conducted in French.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Programming Committee of the 2020 GeOnG Forum. CartONG will get in touch by email regarding your suggestion(s). Please note that proposals will be accepted depending on the remaining number of sessions available.

If you represent a private company, please note that presenting is only possible if your organization agrees to sponsor the conference. Please get in touch with us at: geong@cartong.org
