The first large scale event on data driven journalism in Finland is taking place next week on 29 September, in Tampere.

The event brings together journalists, coders, media companies, academics and others. The event aims to create a meeting place for those interested in data journalism, and is focussing on municipal data and local journalism, in the context of the upcoming 2012 municipal elections in Finland.

Most of the event will be in Finnish, but some sessions will be in English. The event will be streamed online, and thus allow for remote participation. More information in English can be found in the weblog of Antti Poikola.
