In the run up to OpenCon 2015, we’re holding a series of 4 pre-conference webcasts to update the community on Open Access, Open Data, Open Education and the basics of the EU political system. We’ve invited Amye Kenall, BioMed Central’s Associate Publisher of Open Data initiatives and journals to discuss the state of Open Research Data globally. Amye will discuss what progress has been made toward establishing open as the default for Open Data over the past year touching on social, economic and political aspects.
The webcast will be held on Friday, October 30th, at 1pm EDT, 4pm GMT, 6pm CEST. Join live to ask questions and join the discussion online using #opencon. If you can’t join us, leave your question in the comments now!
If you want to learn more about Open Data before the webcast, we recommend you watch our previous Open Data 101 webcast from last year.
