OpenConCam is a satellite event of the international OpenCon which will be held this year in Berlin.

This year's OpenCon theme is "Open in order to..." and the OpenConCam’s theme is "Open for everyone". Our goal is to support and build the open community in Cambridge. 

We want to empower attendees to make a difference in their respective fields through open dataeducation and access and ensure that that difference is inclusive.

Our committee have brought together a great program of speakers but there is also time scheduled for focus group discussion around actions that we can take to make a change in the world. 

To register you need to sign up in two places:

We're charging £5 per person, mostly to ensure that we can accurately account for attendance and provide the right amount of coffee, tea, biscuits, lunch and wine (for the end of event reception). We're greatful to PeerJ and Arcadia for their support which keeps the cost low for all participants.
You can follow the main OpenCon event (11th to 13th November) on twitter using #OpenCon, and you can join the discussion around the Cambridge satellite event at #OpenConCam2017 and follow us @OpenConCam.
