Welcome to the OpenCon community. With the annual events at the core, OpenCon supports a dynamic, diverse, and growing community that works year round to advance Open Access, Open Education and Open Data. The OpenCon community is open to anyone—not just those who have attended the main conference or a satellite event. Together, we can and are build a conference and, more importantly, a community that makes a difference.
Join our regular community calls to keep up to date with the work being done around the world to advance Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education.
Attend an Event
While the global event is application only, satellite event hosts bring OpenCon to you. See if there is an event near you, or step up with our support to bring OpenCon to you.
Whenever you need input, a helping hand or a signal boost you can find what you need on #OpenCon. Twitter is where the OpenCon community is most active, so we’ll see you there.
OpenCon Community Calls, discussing the issues of Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data at a time friendly to the Asia Pacific region
What to expect
Community calls are always friendly, and we love new faces. We’ve got some tips for first-timers, but in short, the more you participate, the more you'll get out of it!
OpenCon community calls give a chance for you to learn what's happening in open research and education around the world, share what you're doing and find collaborators and opportunities.
During the application period we’re experimenting with using community calls to welcome new applicants to the community. For this reason, during this time calls are invitation only. If you’d like to be invited to a call, please email Joe and we’ll try and accommodate you
