The DGIQ agenda will focus on all areas of Data Governance and Information Quality, for organizations that are just starting out, through to advanced practitioners. It is a rich and varied agenda, but because it is focused on DG and IQ, we do not accept topics that are of a more general Data Management nature.

We typically receive a large number of presentations to review, so it is not possible for us to accept all proposals.

Positive weighting is given to presentations that:

  1. Write a concise abstract outlining what attendees will learn and why/how it will be useful to them.
  2. Devote the majority of your presentation to solutions, not overviews of common problems.
  3. Offer new subjects targeted to a specific audience: Management, Steward, Analyst, or Enterprise Architect.
  4. Provide a first-hand, detailed case study from personal experience with lessons learned.
  5. Discuss a detailed management analysis and efficient cost/time-saving measures.
  6. Provide guidelines and road maps for organizations considering new solutions.

For questions about speaking, please contact Tony Shaw, Conference Chair, at tony@dataversity.net.
