Open Data is an important topic for scholarly publishing. From the Nelson memo to the requirements for providing open data to thinking about Data Accessibility Statements, there has been a lot of movement in this pivotal aspect of publishing over the past few years. During this event we will hear from three experts who are each leading a number of recent developments in open data: work on "Make Data Count," an initiative that aims to develop metrics to enable evaluation and reward of open data reuse and impact, recent work on the NIST Research Data Framework, and work by a National Data Service of Sweden with publishers and researchers to make sure that Swedish research data is shared as openly as possible.

Questions addressed will include: 
- What is the importance of open data? 
- What would an ideal ‘open data’ future look like?
- What roles can publishers play in this future? 
- What are the most steps to take right now?
