The OpenSym Conference Experience
OpenSym 2017 will be held at the National University of Ireland, Galway on August 23-25, 2017. Research and community presentations and performances will be accompanied by keynotes, invited speakers, and a social program in one of the most vibrant cities in Ireland. A Doctoral Symposium will also be held the day before the conference begins - August 22, 2017.
This conference provides a platform for researchers and practitioners from a variety of domains to share insights and ideas relevant to understanding open collaboration in its many forms. The open space track is a key ingredient of the event that distinguishes OpenSym from other conferences. It is an integral part of the program that makes it easy to talk to other researchers and practitioners and to stretch your imagination and conversations beyond the limits of your own discipline, exposing you to the full breadth of open collaboration research. The open space track is entirely participant-organized, is open for everyone, and requires no submission or review.
The General Chair of the conference is Lorraine Morgan, Lero (the Irish Software Research Centre) and Whitaker Institute, NUI Galway. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have at info [at] opensym.org.
The Program Co-Chairs are Claudia Müller-Birn (Freie Universität Berlin) and Benjamin Mako Hill (University of Washington). Associate Chairs and program committee members will be listed here as the committee is finalized.
