“This year, Gov 2.0 Summit 2010 brings together critical leaders and decision makers refining the concept of government-as-platform and exploring the ways in which it can be used for transformation,” said Tim O’Reilly, CEO and founder of O’Reilly Media who organizes the event. “Gov 2.0 is about creating a community of Gov 2.0 leaders who can push change forward and outward year-round, answering the president’s call to strengthen our democracy.”

Held Sept. 7 to 8 at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C., the event will feature speakers from government and from the private sector. Some names on the preliminary list of speakers include Karen Cator, Department of Education; David Hale, National Institutes of Health; Todd Park, HHS; John Seely Brown, Deloitte Center for the Edge; and Jim Traficant, Harris Corporation.

The Gov 2.0 Summit will be a two-day executive-level conference with talk-show-style interviews with senior officials and executives, case studies and networking events. Additional information on summit content and registration information is available on the website Gov2Summit.
