OpenCon will be ECS’s first, large community event aimed at creating a culture of change in how research is designed, shared, discussed, and disseminated, with the ultimate goal of making scientific progress faster. Featuring the vocal advocates in the open movement listed below, ECS’s OpenCon will examine the intersection of advances in research infrastructure, the researcher experience, funder mandates and policies, as well as the global shift that is happening in traditional scholarly communications.
The ECS OpenCon is free and open to ECS meeting attendees and the general public. The event will also be broadcast live via the ECS YouTube channel.
See the "ECS OpenCon 2017: Exploring Ideas for Next Generation Research" listing under the General Topics section of the Technical Sessions page of this program for the full schedule.
