Any and all information on the logistics for running a satellite event in conduction with the main OpenCon 2016 meeting will be provided below.
Schedule and Agenda - The webcast part of the conference will run from approximately 9:00AM GMT till around 6:00PM on Saturday and Sunday. You can find the programme for this http://opencon2015.org/program.
Details on the webcast - [Details TBC] The keynotes, panels, and some workshops will be webcast live. We’ll include more details on this as they become available. We are currently aiming to have downloadable versions of the sessions made available within 12 hours of the event. Last year we livestreamed the event, and had recordings up immediately after. Find a playlist of the high quality we produced last year here!
Webcast back-up plans - [Details TBC] We know webcasts can sometimes go wrong. We’re putting several back-up mechanisms into place in case the feed is interrupted so you won’t be left without something to watch. This will include call in lines, so at least audio could be heard, back-up video streams and finally a list of compelling videos to screen as a final option. Let us know if you have other ideas to add to this list by emailing joe [at] righttoresearch [dot] org.
Keep you in the loop during the conference, organisers will be available to field any questions and keep satellite events in the loop on everything happening at the conference. If a session is running late, you’ll know. If a speaker cancels at the last moment, you’ll know. If we’re having technical difficulties, we’ll get you a work around as soon as possible.
The conference hashtag will be: #opencon. Please use this hashtag, as we’d like to keep all the tweets in one place!
