OpenCon is a global meeting and aims to represent the diversity of the Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data communities in the conference program. To achieve this, we have an organizing committee of students and early career academic professionals representing key groups and issues, but we also need community input—we need your input.
You can suggest individual speakers, panels, or one-hour workshops. Suggest the best speakers you’ve seen on the topics of Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data, or if you’re a frequent speaker on these topics and want to address OpenCon, suggest yourself. You can even suggest broad themes or ideas that you’d like to see addressed during OpenCon 2015. However, to be considered for the OpenCon 2015 program, you must submit your suggestion before June 26.
All suggestions will be reviewed by members of the Organizing Committee. We will also save your suggestions for consideration for future meetings and webcasts, and use them to make suggestions to satellite event organizers.
We expect to finalize the program later this summer, and if you want to be notified by email when the program is announced, sign up for OpenCon updates.
Thanks for your suggestions!
