OpenCon Coming to York University November 2-4, 2018 – Opportunity to Attend.

Joy Kirchner, Dean of Libraries is pleased to announce that she is hosting OpenCon 2018, the prestigious international open access conference at York University’s Keele Campus in partnership with University of Toronto and Ryerson University.

OpenCon creates an opportunity for energetic, engaged students and early career academic professionals to learn about open access, open education and open data. It also provides an opportunity for participants to develop critical skills, find collaborators and catalyze action toward a more open system for sharing the world’s information.

Delegates become part of the larger OpenCon community, which has more than 10,000 participants from more than 176 countries and remain engaged through monthly community calls and their own projects, campaigns and initiatives.

As the hosting institution, the York University community has been offered five spaces for OpenCon 2018.
