OpenCon es la conferencia internacional sobre acceso abierto al conocimiento científico y académico, educación abierta y datos abiertos. Ademas de ser una conferencia, OpenCon es una comunidad global que permite el intercambio de ideas y la discusión constante para contribuir al movimiento Abierto, la ciencia, la educación inclusiva y el desarrollo
En el 2016 en el evento global que se llevo a cabo en Washington D.C notamos la importancia de llevar OpenCon a la comunidad Latinoamericana. Esperamos que el evento satélite en Costa Rica sirva como precedente para el evento regional, OpenCon LatAm que se llevará a cabo en Mexico D.F en Octubre y el evento Global, OpenCon 2017 en Berlín en Noviembre.
Costa Rica continúa enfrentando una serie de desafíos económicos, tecnológicos y sociales para aumentar la adopción del modelo educativo abierto. Queremos reunir a estudiantes, profesionales, investigadores, profesores, sociedad civil, entre otros agentes de cambio que estén dispuestos a enfrentar estos desafíos con el respaldo de la comunidad OpenCon global.
The Electrochemical Society is a nonprofit, independent, publisher hosting OpenCon in conjunction with its 232nd meeting in National Harbor, MD. Our event is completely free to attend but we would greatly appreciate any donation, all the proceeds of which will go toward our campaign for complete open access and open science scholarly communications tools!
ECS's OpenCon will have a line-up of an opening reception, lightning talks, break-out sessions, a panel discussion, and an after-conference gathering for networking. Our speakers come range from The Gates Foundation to data scientists. Some of the topics discussed will be: Open in Government, Open in Industry, Open Access, and Open Data. We hope you can make it! If not, our hope is to create a live stream of the event for virtual attendance. Check out our agenda and be sure to RSVP!
OpenCon's flagship global conference is dedicated to educating students and early-career researchers about the importance of open access, open data, and open education, and giving them the tools to be effective advocates for change. At the OpenCon 2016 main meeting in Washington D.C., we had the largest number of Latin American participants to date and were able to hold the first main conference session held entirely in Spanish and Portuguese. We had 12 participants from 8 countries - Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, México, Perú, and Puerto Rico. The outcome of that session was the formation of an international organizing committee dedicated to establishing a regional meeting - OpenCon Latin America (OpenCon LatAm).
Latin America is in a unique position with respect to open scholarship. The region has been a leader in open access, with a high percentage of our journals free for readers and authors, and several countries (Argentina, Brazil, México, and Peru) adopting national level open access policies in the last four years. We have important experiences to share about successful publication funding models and policy development.
Despite our successes, Latin America continues to face a number of economic, technological, and social challenges to increasing adoption of open scholarship. We want to bring together students, early-career professionals, faculty, funders, and more, who face these challenges everyday and are ready to talk solutions.
OpenCon LatAm will be held 12-13 October 2017 in Mexico City. We look forward to seeing you there!

OpenCon 2017 Zaria is a conference open to all students and early career professionals working to advance Open Access, Open Education, or Open Data in their community.
Open Data is increasingly being adopted by many countries in the pursuit to make public data readily available and accessible to all citizens without restrictions. To date, research and education data remains inaccessible to the majority of citizens whom it's intended to help especially those in rural and remote areas. Making education and research data readily available will be a stepping stone to ensuring an informed global citizens.
