Thanks to the travel restrictions imposed due to Covid-19, TICTeC will not be going ahead in Reykjavik. Instead, we will be taking the TICTeC experience online. We very much hope you’ll join us from the comfort of your own homes.
Here’s everything you need to know to be a part of the first ever completely virtual version of our annual Impacts of Civic Technology conference.
On the afternoons of Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 March.
Tuesday: 13:00 to 17:00 GMT
Wednesday: 13:00 to 17:10 GMT
There’ll also be fringe events happening around these times.
Free of charge, of course.
What’s the agenda?
You can see the timings for each session on the agenda here. Join us for the whole lot, or dip in and out to the parts that interest you.
We’re delighted to say that we’ll still have barnstorming keynote sessions from Nanjala Nyabola and Hollie Russon Gilman, each giving profound insights into the extraordinary political times we are living in, from a global perspective.
There’ll also be sessions from representatives of Iceland‘s local and national government and civil society; research presented from Uganda, Taiwan, North and South America and beyond; and speakers from a range of organisations including Civic Hall, Citizens Foundation of Iceland, g0v.tw, Transparency International UK, The African Legal Information Institute, Frag Den Staat… and more.
So TICTeC will still be allowing you to gain insights from all around the world, sticking to our mission of bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
What else is going on?
There will be fringe events as well (details TBA) and the opportunity to chat online with other attendees.
What do I need to take part?
Presentations will be taking place via Zoom. Before TICTeC starts, please make sure you have downloaded the Zoom launcher, or read this page to learn more about Zoom, including how to use it in your browser. The link to TICTeC is https://zoom.us/j/528401903.
This link is also on the agenda page.
Slido allows the audience to submit and vote for audience questions, so the ones that the speaker answers are the ones most people want to hear. Once the event is live, just enter the code at the top of the agenda on slido.com in your browser. If you prefer to use the app, download it here.
Access to Google docs
There’ll be a collaborative document for each session where we can all work together to take notes for each session. Find them all here.
You won’t need a Google account to view or add to these documents.
You might want to do all this in good time before Tuesday, just to make sure everything works!
What if I can’t make those dates?
We’ll be putting the videos online afterwards, and you can check the notes as well. So the only thing you’ll miss out on is the real-time chatting and networking.
Please spread the word
We have room for literally thousands of participants, so this is the chance for anyone who has an interest in Civic Tech to come and enjoy some great presentations for free.
Let’s take this opportunity to widen our audience and put the word out through social media, newsletters, blog posts, wherever people will see it. Thanks!
We want to extend our thanks to the sponsors and supporters of TICTeC 2020:
