The OHSU Library Wants to Send You to Brussels for OpenCon 2015!

As part of a year-long series of grant funded campus events focused on open science and scientific communication, the OHSU Library is sponsoring a full scholarship for one OHSU student or postdoc to attend OpenCon 2015 in Brussels, Belgium, November 14 – 16.

OpenCon is a student and early career researcher conference on Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education. Through keynotes, panel discussions, workshops, and hackathons, attendees will build knowledge, skills, and relationships that will transform how they think about scientific communication and their impact as researchers and practitioners.  OpenCon 2014 drew participants from 39 countries across five continents.  The 2015 conference promises to be even more diverse!

To apply to attend, please complete this short application by June 22 at 11:59 PM PDT.  Please note, OHSU applications must include “Oregon Health & Science University” as an affiliated organization.  The OpenCon Application Review Team will select the scholarship winner and acceptance decisions will be delivered on or before July 21, 2015.  The scholarship will cover the full cost of travel, lodging, and registration fees.  All OHSU students and postdocs are eligible.

Please contact Robin Champieux, Scholarly Communication Librarian, with questions about the conference or application process.
