[BOAI] Applications to Attend OpenCon 2014 Now Open
From: Nick Shockey <nick AT arl.org>
Applications to attend OpenCon 2014 in Washington, DC from November 15-17 are ↵ officially open! Students and early career researchers can apply now at ↵ www.opencon2014.org/apply. The application form includes the option to apply ↵ for a travel scholarship, which will be awarded to many accepted participants. Organized by the Right to Research Coalition and SPARC, OpenCon 2014 is the ↵ student and early career researcher conference on Open Access, Open Education, ↵ and Open Data and will be held on November 15-17, 2014 in Washington, DC. The ↵ meeting will convene students and early career researchers from around the ↵ world and serve as a powerful catalyst for projects led by the next generation ↵ of scholars and researchers to advance OpenCon's three focus areas Applications will remain open for 3 weeks—until the end of the day on August ↵ 25th. However, we strongly encourage you to apply early. Acceptance decisions ↵ will begin to be made immediately, and if you will need a visa to travel to the ↵ United States, an early acceptance decision could give you more time to ↵ successfully apply for a US visa. We’re also excited to announce our first OpenCon 2014 speakers, including Dr. ↵ Philip Bourne, the Associate Director for Data Science at the United States ↵ National Institutes of Health, and John Wilbanks, the Chief Commons Officer at ↵ Sage Bionetworks and 2012 TED Global Presenter. You can find more details on ↵ the program at www.opencon2014.org/program.
