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.

Complete and submit the application form by August 1, 2017 to apply for the Simon Fraser University Library travel scholarship to attend OpenCon 2017.  Simon Fraser University graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are eligible to apply through this form. The Simon Fraser University Library will decide which applicant will receive the scholarship, and applicants will be notified by August 31, 2017.

**please note: the SFU Library scholarship includes registration to OpenCon.  The scholarship is not restricted to those already accepted to attend.**

Application deadline is August 1, 2017. For more information, please see their website or email Rebecca Dowson, Digital Scholarship Librarian, at rda26@sfu.ca
