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.
