The calendar turned over to a new year, so it’s time to start looking at the events that will make up 2019. Among the highlights for civic technologists across the nation, Code for America is hosting its annual summit on May 29-31 in Oakland, Calif.

The event looks to gather some 1,300 people including members of the local brigades that operate under its banner and public servants. The goal is to make connections and look at problems being solved at the intersection of government and tech. For those looking to get their work out into the light, Code for America put out a call for proposals.

The organization is looking for speakers illuminate areas such as applying a user focus when it comes to digital service delivery, making sense of new technology, bringing together policy and technology and shaping the tech landscape for all.

Overall, the three-day summit has three tracks:

  • Digital delivery, focusing on the workings of cross-disciplinary teams.
  • Civic innovation, honing in on improving services for citizens
  • GovOps, looking at processes and culture within government.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 11.
