OpenCon 2016 is the student and early career academic professional conference on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data being held in Washington, DC.

The OpenCon 2016 Cambridge satellite event will bring together students, early career academic professionals and open advocates from around Cambridge (although anyone from the surrounding areas are welcome to join us!)

This year’s theme is Building Impact Through Openness.

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 research, data, education and access.

This year’s committee have brought together a sensational program of world leading speakers but there is also time scheduled for focus group discussion around actions that we can take to make a change in the world.

Furthermore there’s ample time set aside in the day to ensure all the attendees will be able to share their ongoing activities (in the “silent” unconference) and hopefully build new collaborations for the future.

You can follow the main OpenCon event in held in Washington DC #OpenCon, and you can join the discussion around the Cambridge satellite event at #OpenConCam2016.

We look forward to seeing you there! Please reach out if you have any questions.
