Hey guys, trust y’all have been great and I hope you enjoyed the long holiday.
I’ve been getting good feedbacks from you guys about the conferences I’ve been attending and sharing with you. Due to this, I decided to share with you details of upcoming conferences that I think you might be interested in.
Below are three upcoming conferences that I’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss.
1. OpenCon (Advancing Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data)
OpenCon is the conference and community for students and early career academic professionals interested in advancing Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data.
OpenCon 2017 will be held on November 11-13 in Berlin, Germany. Each year, OpenCon brings together a diverse, representative, and engaged group of participants, with travel scholarships available to most participants. For this reason, attendance at OpenCon 2017 is by application only.
The benefits of applying for OpenCon 2017 extend far beyond attending the Berlin meeting. It’s an opportunity to find collaborators, get connected with scholarships to attend related conferences, and be recognized by the community for the work you do to promote Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data.
You can apply for a travel scholarship to the conference. Application for registration to the conference closes on the 1st of August, 2017.
2. AlterConf (Diversity in Tech & Gaming Conference)
This one is a tech conference and it is not free (but it isn’t really expensive).
It comes up on the 1st of July in Victoria Island, Lagos.
AlterConf is a traveling conference series that provides safe opportunities for marginalized people and those who support them in the tech and gaming industries.
The conferences go beyond the limited definitions and basic discussions of diversity to create a deeper, more nuanced conversation. Each conference features a wide range of speakers delivering critical analyses of tech and gaming culture and presenting their vision for what our community can be.
