Cambridge Global Challenges


OpenConCam is back for its third year on 16th November 2017 - the conference for open access, data and education in Cambridge. OpenConCam is a satellite event of the international OpenCon which will be held this year in Berlin.

This year's OpenCon theme is "Open in order to..." and the OpenConCam’s theme is "Open for everyone". The goal is to support and build the open community in Cambridge. The organisers want to empower attendees to make a difference in their respective fields through open data, education and access and ensure that that difference is inclusive.

The conference committee has brought together a strong program of speakers; however, there is also time scheduled for focus group discussion around actions for making a change in the world.

To register you need to sign up in two places:

  • OpenConCam's event page
  • and the University of Cambridge's payment page

The entry charge is £5 per person, and includes tea, coffee, cheese, and wine. PeerJ and Arcadia's support for the conference is greatly appreciated.
