Welcome

The International Conference of Information Commissioners is coming to Manchester on 20 September 2017. Under the theme Trust, transparency and progressive information rights the conference will explore a wide range of issues affecting access to information through FOI, both in the UK and worldwide.  Topics include:

  • Innovations in access to information
  • The future of transparency
  • Global models: how well do they work?
  • Journalists, access to information and open data
  • What are progressive information rights and how do we achieve them?

We hope you can join us at this important FOI event to share your own experiences and learning from the work of others.

The agenda and travel information can be found on the links at the top of this page.  More information will be added in coming weeks, as our programme develops.

We look forward to welcoming you to Manchester in September. If you have any questions, please contact us.

You can still register to attend by completing our online open conference registration form. There is a fee of £99 per delegate for this event.

The 2017 conference is jointly hosted by the UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham and Acting Scottish Information Commissioner Margaret Keyse.
