***TO PROPOSE A SESSION, FILL OUT THIS FORM: https://goo.gl/forms/ovK9RnKAQch52bXr2 - Please fill out before 1:30 PM! 

Unconferences allow participants to take control of the conference. Participants get to propose, vote on, and run sessions themselves. This enables peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and diverse session types and topics.

Sessions can be proposed and voted on before and during the conference. Even if a session doesn’t happen, hosts will find people interested in their session to collaborate with following OpenCon.

Session types:

Below are some ideas for the types of sessions that could be done, but chose a format (even if it's not the list) which supports what you'd like to do.

  • Group discussion: someone picks a topic they’re interested in, writes it on the board, and forms an interesting discussion around it.
  • Hacking and project sprints: make something, contribute to something (e.g the Open Research Glossary)
  • Learn about, or how to do X. If you’re inclined to teach, this can be simple and awesome. Just make sure you bring whatever gear you need, and that you have some plan for teaching 5, 10 or 15 people how to do something all at the same time.
