Following the [announcement of the dates for this year’s Open Knowledge Conference (OKCon)](http://blog.okfn.org/2013/03/21/announcing-the-open-knowledge-conference-2013-open-data-broad-deep-connected/), we have been asked by many people from our community how they can get involved.
We are now glad and excited to give you the news: **the [Call for Proposals](http://okcon.org/call-for-proposals/) is launched today!**
[OKCon 2013](http://okcon.org/) will be an intense 2-day event (taking place on 17th-18th September in Geneva, Switzerland). Its programme will be curated in part directly by the organisers, nominating Invited Speakers, and partly together with you – our community – thanks to your proposals.
We have identified six specific topics to discuss and explore on this year’s theme of **Open Data – Broad, Deep, Connected** which we hope will inspire and excite you as much as it does us:
* Open Data, Government and Governance
* Open Development and Sustainability
* Open Science and Research
* Open Culture
* Technology, Tools and Business
* Evidence and Stories
We have compiled a how-to guide, with FAQs and the submission form – please find them all on the [OKCon 2013 Call for Proposal webpage](http://okcon.org/call-for-proposals/). We are looking forward to your ideas!
The Call for Proposals **starts today (7th May)** and **ends on 24th May, at 23:59:59 GMT**. Read all about OKCon’s Call for Proposals and more [on the conference website](http://okcon.org/).
