“Empowering the next generation to advance. Open Access, Open Education and Open data” is the focus of Open CON 2015 (http://www.opencon2015.org/).
Our one-day workshop aims at gathering early career researchers as well as any open-oriented scientist, in order to debate about the value of openness, the tools and the incentives for opening up science, the need of a change in the ongoing practices.
We shall welcome two of the world’s best known open scientists, Peter Murray-Rust and Erin McKiernan, who will share with us their paths towards openness.
We shall try so answer to common questions such as: how can I promote my research via social networks? How can I make my data open? How can I license my data? How can I put my works in Open Access?
Questions and daily issues within the research workflow are welcomed. There will be plenty of time to address your cultural and practical concerns during the two interactive "Spot on" sessions.
The workshop will be in English.
