Satellite events are held year round, open to anyone, and arranged by hosts around the world in partnership with the main OpenCon conference. Approximately 2000 people have attended past events in 2014 and 2015. Satellites often combine content, themes and ideas from the main meeting with locally arranged activities. They're the perfect way to learn and get involved in the community, and are an essential part of the OpenCon community.
Our first satellite events are still being confirmed. When they are, you'll see a map here. Satellites are hosted by volunteers. If you want an event near you, then consider hosting one yourself! We’ll support you every step of the way, and hosting a satellite can really help build a community for those working to open up research and education near you. You can find more at our satellite event information pages!
You can find satellites we've previously hosted here.
