Event description

Description

Digital Science, alongside three of our portfolio companies – Altmetric, Figshare and Overleaf, have teamed up with ScienceOpen and the Know Center to organise an OpenCon ‘satellite’ event to be held in London on the 21st November. This event will form one of the many international satellite events of the bigger OpenCon 2017 conference that will take place a week earlier in Berlin, Germany.

OpenCon is the student and early career academic professional conference that focuses on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data. It seeks to empower the next generation to advance openness in research and education.

OpenCon satellite events are organised by those who are passionate about communicating the important messages of Open Information with the world, and are welcome to anyone interested in joining the conversation and connecting with a community of like-minded individuals. OpenCon London is open to anyone to participate in, irrespective of your background, profession, or experience.

There will be two main events: a hackathon during the day, and networking and talks during the evening. Please note that you must sign up separately for both.

Day Schedule

9.00 AM - 5.00 PM - OpenCon Hackathon. Please sign up separately for this event here. For more information, and to propose a project for either track, see details here.
