This international conference seeks to provide a space for leading thinkers, civil society members, activists, programmers, and entrepreneurs to imagine, discover, share, solve, connect and act together.

The conference focuses on two areas of justice and human rights work: 1) evidence gathering and documentation and 2) advocacy and outreach. Conference participants will explore how new developments in science and technology could advance these two areas. The conference will combine keynote addresses and plenary sessions with hands-on opportunities to interact with developers and users during panel discussions, workshops, and a poster session/exhibition hall.
