Join us for OpenCon 2016 Boston, a satellite event of OpenCon 2016, a global conference for students and early-career researchers to learn about open access, open data, and open education.
Hosted by Boston University, OpenCon 2016 Boston will feature programming with the theme of "open in action," including a talk by a member of the project team from Open Data to Open Knowledge, Boston's Knight Foundation-funded initiative to make open government data an accessible public resource. Other sessions will include a discussion of information justice and interactive lightning talks about tools for and approaches to open research, including an introduction to ORCID, how and why to make your work available in an institutional repository (such as OpenBU, BU's repository), an open research case study, and an overview of open access mandates for grants. We're also partnering with the BU Study Group to offer an evening open science/data presentation.
OpenCon 2016 Boston is free and open to all. Please register at is.gd/openconboston. Your registration will help us plan for a venue and refreshments.
