The Open Knowledge Conference (OKCon) is back for its fourth installment bringing together individuals and groups from across the open knowledge spectrum for a day of discussions workshops.

This year the event will feature dedicated sessions on ‘open knowledge and development’ and ‘open data and the semantic web’. In addition we are reserving a substantial part of the event for the ‘Open Space’ – sessions, workshops and discussions proposed either via the call for proposals or on the day.

Interested in giving a paper? Have a project to talk about? Want to run a workshop or session? Please see the call for proposals:

Want to get involved in putting the event together or otherwise helping out? Contact us at info [at] okfn [dot] org or add your name to the OKCon wiki page:

Last but not least: we encourage early registration as space is limited:
