OKCon 2011 is now just over one month away. Registration is ongoing at so you can still book your tickets online here. Early bird prices will be available until 1st June 2011 only, so book early!

The official deadline for submissions has passed (but if you’ve missed it – please contact us and we will see what we can do!) and we are in the process of reviewing and finalising submissions

The preliminary programme is available here and includes keynotes, panel discussions and workshops on topics from open data’s role in democracy and culture, data-driven journalism, free software (and open hardware!), licensing, open data research and education and more!

A full list of speakers confirmed so far can be found here.

Travel-bursary scheme:

We want to make sure that no-one is prevented from taking advantage of the opportunity to attend OKCon 2011 for financial reasons so are offering a limited number of travel bursaries. These can be used to either fully or partially cover the cost of travel to and from the conference.

Please note that we can only help a limited number of people with travel bursaries so apply only if your financial situation really does not allow you to join OKCon from your own funds.

You can apply for a travel bursary here.

Applications will be reviewed and answered by 1st June 2011.

For any questions about travel bursaries, please contact daniel.dietrich [at] okfn.org
