- 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 brings together students, early career academic professionals and open advocates from around Cambridge.
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 brought together a sensational program of world leading speakers but there was also time scheduled for focus group discussion around actions that we can take to make a change in the world.
Furthermore there was ample time set aside in the day to ensure all the attendees were be able to share their ongoing activities (in the "silent" unconference) and hopefully build new collaborations for the future.
- This event was live-streamed. A high-quality recording will soon be available, but in the meantime you can watch the on-the-day version on the OpenConCam YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/xlIqNYYaFYs?t=20m52s …
