OpenCon 2016 convoca a estudiantes y profesionales académicos para avanzar en tres areas de enfoque: Acceso Abierto, Educación Abierta, y Datos Abiertos. Mediante un programa de conferencias magistrales, mesas redondas, talleres y hackathons, los participantes podrán desarrollar habilidades en áreas clave de sensibilización institucional para la coordinación de campañas a nivel nacional de forma eficaz.
OpenCon is more than a conference. It’s a platform for the next generation to learn about Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data, develop critical skills, and catalyze action toward a more open system for sharing the world’s information—from scholarly and scientific research, to educational materials, to digital research data. OpenCon 2016 is at the center of a growing community with thousands of students and early career academic professionals from across the world.
Applications to attend OpenCon 2016 on November 12-14 in Washington, DC are open! The application is available at http://www.opencon2016.org/apply. Applicants can request a travel scholarship, which will be awarded to most of those accepted. OpenCon seeks to bring together students and early career academic professionals from around the world who want to advance Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data—regardless of their ability to pay for travel costs. A program of keynotes, panels, workshops, hackathons, and meetings with policy makers will build participant’s skills in key areas, but the benefits of applying for OpenCon 2016 extend far beyond attending the Washington event. Find out more and apply before July 11th at http://www.opencon2016.org/apply
While attendance at the main conference in Washington, DC is by application only, everyone is invited to participate freely in the interactive webcast, OpenCon Live. Attendees, remote or in-person, will network with diverse participants from dozens of nations around the world, engage with leading speakers and have the chance to take action. OpenCon is also looking for partners to host local satellite events that combine programming from the main conference with local presentations to advance the conversation around opening up research and education in your community. To express interest in hosting a satellite event and get more information, visit http://www.opencon2016.org/satellite.
