Press release

Today, SPARC and the Right to Research Coalition are excited to announce OpenCon 2016 will be returning to Washington, DC on November 12-14, 2016, where it will be hosted at the American University Washington College of Law.

OpenCon is more than a conference. It’s a platform for the next generation to learn about Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data, develop critical skills, and catalyze action toward a more open system for sharing the world’s information—from scholarly and scientific research, to educational materials, to digital research data. OpenCon 2016 is at the center of a growing community with thousands of students and early career academic professionals from across the world.

Applications to attend OpenCon 2016 in Washington, DC will open on June 6th. For more information about the conference and to sign up for updates, visit


OpenCon 2016’s three day program will begin with two days of keynotes, panels, and interactive workshops, drawing on both the knowledge of leading experts and the experience of participants who lead successful projects. The third day will provide a half-day of advocacy training followed by the opportunity for in-person meetings with relevant policy makers, ranging from the US Congress and federal agencies to embassies and key NGOs.
