This global conference draws people interested in advancing open access, open education and open data. While the main conference will be held in Berlin Nov. 11-13, satellite events are held in partnership with it and scheduled at varied times throughout the year.

VCU Libraries’ day-long OpenCon Virginia satellite event will bring together students, researchers, educators, librarians, and others interested in learning more about accessibility of information in research and education. The program will include keynotes, lightning talks and breakout sessions on topics of open data, reproducibility, open educational resources, new methods and models of open publishing and more. Hilda Bastian, Ph.D., will be a featured keynote speaker. Lightning talk proposals accepted through Dec. 8.


Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad Street, West Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. For more information, please contact the VCU Libraries Events Office at (804) 828-0593.
