It was organized by the Right to Research Coalition, SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), and an Organizing Committee of students and early career researchers from around the world.

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). 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.
