Dear all,

Registration is now open for the OER16 Open Culture Conference <https://oer16.oerconf.org/> at the University of Edinburgh, and an ‘early bird’ discount is available until 6 March. 

The early bird rate is £250 for the full 2 day conference including the Gala Dinner on Tuesday, 19 April. Limited places for one day attendance are available, although we encourage delegates to register for the full event whenever possible. Single day attendance does not include the Gala Dinner and costs £160. No early bird discount is available for single days.

OER16 will take place on 19th & 20th April 2016 at the University of Edinburgh. The conference will be chaired by Melissa Highton, Director of Learning, Teaching and Web Services at the University of Edinburgh, and Lorna Campbell, OER Liaison at the University of Edinburgh and EDINA Digital Education Manager.

OER16 will focus on:
	• The strategic advantage of open and creating a culture of openness.
	• Converging and competing cultures of open knowledge, open source, open content, open practice, open data and open access.
	• Hacking, making and sharing.
	• The reputational challenges of openwashing.
	• Openness and public engagement.
	• Innovative approaches to opening up cultural heritage collections for education.

Keynotes speakers are Catherine Cronin, Jim Groom, Melissa Highton, John Scally and Emma Smith.
