Main Theme: Human-centric data in practice
It’s time for action to show that the personal data services can be human-centric yet profitable and sustainable! The building blocks for understanding and implementing a fair data economy are here.
At MyData 2023, the businesses, public sector and the civil society organisations will meet to bring the human-centric data ecosystems to life. Common practices, standards and technologies will be in the focus.
By embracing the theme “human-centric data in practice”, we explore how the design, collection, processing and analysis of personal data serves the needs and experiences of the human being, and what is being done to put the person in the centre of what data they share and with whom.
To make it happen, and make it right, we need a combination of business, legal, tech and society perspectives – all equally important for accelerating the human-centric policies and their practical implementation.
While submissions related to the indicated topics are prioritised, we are flexible to accommodate important topics that you might propose through this Call for Proposals.
Business, Legal, Tech, and Social perspectives.
- After the call ends on 26 March, all submissions will be reviewed by a dedicated review team. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 4 April.
- We might accept the proposals in their original form or recommend specific changes to strengthen the overall session. While you can make changes to your proposal in the month(s) leading to the conference, providing a well-thought and articulated description for your proposal will distinguish it from other similar proposals, and hold significant weight in our evaluation process.
- Priority is given to proposals from MyData thematic groups and local hubs as well as MyData Global’s friend organisations.
- Further, we strive towards a diverse programme representing views from traditionally underrepresented groups and different areas of expertise. Submissions that show diversity (incl. presenters’ gender and geographic profile, perspectives, and formats) in the design of their proposal will earn plus points from the review team.
- All accepted proposals will be supported by the MyData conference team to ensure continuity and coherence of the overall programme. So expect to work with us closely as we prepare the programme for success!

Equipment available: one laptop and projector screen. Post-it notes, pens, paper and other materials need to be provided by the session host.
- Meetup – Networking meeting of like-minded participants on a topic.
- Workshop – Well-prepared and goal-oriented hands-on workshop in which knowledge on a specific topic is communicated or specific skills are mediated.
- Roundtable – Hold a close discussion and exploration of a specific topic. A roundtable should hold all participants on equal footing with the aim to confront issues rather than people.
OTHER ACTIVITIES (VARIES)
We do not want to limit your imagination! You can propose other kinds of content to the conference or side activities with visitors outside of the sessions: be it flash mob, field test, site visit, installation, exhibition, concert, pop-up happening or something else.
Please note! Priority is given to the proposals for 15-20 min presentations on topics relevant to the programme focus, but we remain flexible in incorporating longer content to the conference sessions. For longer proposals, we may suggest alterations or collaboration with another programme contributor.
