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.
