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.
