Dear all,

Please consider attending!

OpenCon 2016 Berlin: Advancing Openness in Research and Education<https://blogs.openaire.eu/?p=1252>

OpenAIRE<http://openaire.eu/>, ScienceOpen <https://www.scienceopen.com/> and Digital-science<https://www.digital-science.com/> (with their portfolio companies Figshare<https://figshare.com/> and Overleaf<https://www.overleaf.com/>), have teamed up to organise an OpenCon 'satellite' event to be held in Berlin on the 24-26th November<http://www.opencon2016.org/opencon_2016_berlin>.

This event will form one of the many international satellite events of the main OpenCon 2016<http://www.opencon2015.org/> conference that will take place two weeks earlier in Washington, DC.

OpenCon is the student and early career academic professional conference that focuses on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data. It seeks to empower the next generation to advance openness in research and education.

OpenCon satellite events are organised by those who are passionate about communicating the important messages of Open Information with the world, and are welcome to anyone interested in joining the conversation and connecting with a community of like-minded individuals.

When: 24th to 26th of November 2016.

Where: Humboldt University Berlin.

What: The event will focus on putting Open Science into action through open collaboration. On Thursday evening (24th) we will be hosting a hackathon to get people in the mood and have a chance to get settled before the main event!

Our keynote speaker (Friday 25th, 10am), will be Julia Reda<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Reda> MEP - a woman on a mission to reform copyright legislation.

Alongside presentations and interesting talks made by those who have benefited and gained from open information, we'll run focused workshops on themes you'll choose via crowdsourcing.

During the event, we will run a few short and themed focus group sessions; in each session we hope to start a conversation where people share advice and success stories about the industry. Discussions and resources willbe collated via open documents like etherpads and collected as outputs of the event.

We're all in the business of collaboration and we hope the event will inspire those who attend to do just that!

Registration: OpenCon Berlin 2016 is free to attend, but you must RSVP via the OpenCon Berlin 2016 website: http://www.opencon2016.org/opencon_2016_berlin
