Researchers and practitioners of open collaboration will flock to San Francisco from August 19 to 21. They’ll be in town for OpenSym, a conference dedicated to open collaborative projects, such as Wikipedia.
For the Wiki Education Foundation, this is right in our neighborhood. That’s not only because we’re also focused on open access collaboration in classrooms. It’s also literally in our neighborhood, as the Golden Gate Club — where OpenSym is held — is just footsteps away from our office in the Presidio.
This is a great opportunity to meet with the social scientists, digital humanities researchers, and computer scientists who make up the multidisciplinary attendee list of OpenSym. Our Wikipedia Content Expert Adam Hyland will attend the conference, and we’re hosting a Welcome Reception for registered attendees on Wednesday, August 19.
We’re pleased to be joining the OpenSym conference in 2015, and look forward to contributing to the spirit of open, multi-disciplinary research and collaboration.
