Please Register Now for MERL Tech 2016

By Wayan Vota on August 29, 2016


Please register now for MERL Tech 2016, the premier conference on the use of technology for monitoring, evaluation, research, and learning. Over 300 of your peers will experience 18 breakouts, 12 workshops, 10 lightning talks, and 6 keynotes to explore:

  • How can we design for the full Data Lifecycle – planning, collection, storage, analysis, disposal – within limited operational budgets?
  • What Responsible Data approaches and policies can we adopt to ensure that we  maintain high ethical standards and data security, while still being transparent and collaborative?
  • When and how can Big Data, Open Data, and Real-Time Data support program objectives and begin to predict outcomes in time to impact decision making? What are the risks in these approaches?
  • Where can Remote Monitoring and Remote Sensing improve our understanding of conflict or disaster zones where traditional in-person review is limited? When should we be cautious about these approaches?
  • How can Dashboards and GIS provide faster program analysis and quicker, more inclusive decision-making with all program constituents?

Our action-packed agenda is designed to encourage a week-long focus on making connections with your peers and learning how to implement new solutions. All conference participants will receive each others contact details before the event starts, and then:

  • October 3 will focus on building interpersonal connections and networks between participants as they explore the tools and theories of MERL technology.
  • October 4 will focus on hands-on, practical workshops to learn how to move from MERL tech idea to action.

The two-day conference will be followed by a free open-bar reception and MERL demo session on the evening of October 4th for casual, yet informative networking.

Please register now to confirm your attendance – we will sell out in advance of the event, as we have each year previously.
