There are still some free tickets left for the "Big data, big 
opportunity" conference, at the Australian National University in 
Canberra, Wednesday, 19 November 2014: 

This features Pia Waugh, Director of Coordination and Gov 2.0, 
Australian Government. This is a PHD conference, where the program is 
mostly research students presenting their work in short snappy
