The application period for OpenCon 2017 on November 11-13 in Berlin is now open! The application is available at http://www.opencon2017.org/apply and includes the opportunity to apply for a travel scholarship. Applications will close on August 1st at 11:59pm U.S. Pacific Time.
OpenCon seeks to bring together effective, engaged students and early career academic professionals from around the world to advance Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data—regardless of their ability to pay for travel costs. In OpenCon’s first three years, most invited attendees who required financial support received full or partial scholarships to attend the conference. For this reason, attendance at OpenCon is by application only.
