The second round Call for Proposals for the Open Knowledge Festival has been launched. The Open Knowledge Festival will take place in September in Helsinki, Finland, and combines the Open Knowledge Conference and Open Government Data Camp as they were organized in recent years.

The 2012 theme of OKFestival is Open Knowledge in Action. The program is crowdsourced to a large extent (with guest programmers populating the various thematic streams)

In the second round these streams can now be populated with specific sessions and contributions. The submission form is online. The deadline for submitting contributions is 1 June.

Thematic streams in which proposals will be considered are:

  1. Open Democracy and Citizen Movements
  2. Open Government Data
  3. Open Cities (including Open Transport Data)
  4. Open Design, Hardware, Manufacturing & Making
  5. Open Cultural Heritage
