OpenCon 2014 is the student and early career researcher conference on Open
Access, Open Education, and Open Data held during November 2014 at
Washington, DC. It was organized by the Right to Research Coalition
<http://www.opencon2014.org/apply>, SPARC <http://sparc.arl.org> 
(The
Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), and an Organizing
Committee of students and early career researchers from around the world
<http://www.opencon2014.org/about/organizingcommittee>.

The meeting had convened students and early career researchers from around
the world who serve as a powerful catalyst for projects led by the next
generation of scholars and researchers to advance OpenCon's three focus
areas--Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data.

OpenCon 2014 Delhi Satellite event is being held in partnership with the
main conference (more on OpenCon 2014 here 
<http://www.opencon2014.org/>).
As it is important to allow more of those interested to participate, this
satellite event is being organized locally to reflect the fact that the
conversation around these issues can be very different depending on where
they're had.

OpenCon 2014 Delhi will feature leading speakers from across the Open
Access, Open Education, and Open Data movements, including a combination of
live speakers and videos from the OpenCon 2014 Washington event.

The talks will be interspersed with interactive group discussions themed
around the session topic.
