About the OpenSym Conference
The 10th International Symposium on Open Collaboration (OpenSym 2014) is the premier conference on open collaboration research and practice, including open access, open data, open educational resources, IT-driven open innovation, open source, wikis and related social media, and Wikipedia research and practice. Learn more about OpenSym 2014 and the OpenSym conference series.
OpenSym is the successor to the WikiSym conference, which it extends and embraces. For now, WikiSym has become two tracks of OpenSym, the general open collaboration and the Wikipedia research track.
The OpenSym Conference Experience
OpenSym 2014 will be held in Berlin on August 27-29, 2013. Research and community presentations and performances will be accompanied by keynotes, invited speakers, and a social program in one of the most vibrant cities on this planet.
The open space track is a key ingredient of the event that distinguishes OpenSym from other conferences. It is an integral part of the program that makes it easy to talk to other researchers and practitioners and to stretch your imagination and conversations beyond the limits of your own sub-discipline, exposing you to the full breadth of open collaboration research. The open space track is entirely participant-organized, is open for everyone, and requires no submission or review.
The general chair of the conference is Dirk Riehle of Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
