OpenCon is the conference and community for students and early career academic professionals interested in advancing Open Access, Open Education and Open Data. OpenCon 2017 will be held on November 11-13 in Berlin, Germany. Each year, OpenCon brings together a diverse, representative, and engaged group of participants, with travel scholarships available to most participants. For this reason, attendance at OpenCon 2017 is by application only.
The benefits of applying for OpenCon 2017 extend far beyond attending the Berlin meeting. It’s an opportunity to find collaborators, get connected with scholarships to attend related conferences, and be recognized by the community for the work you do to promote Open Access, Open Education and Open Data.
