OpenSym 2019

August 19, 2019 - August 22, 2019


The 15th International Symposium on Open Collaboration

The 15th International Symposium on Open Collaboration (OpenSym 2019) is the premier conference on open collaboration research and practice, including open source, open data, open science, open education, wikis and related social media, Wikipedia, and IT-driven open innovation research.

OpenSym is the first conference series to bring together the different strands of open collaboration research and practice, seeking to create synergies and inspire new collaborations between people from computer science, information science, social science, humanities, and everyone interested in understanding open collaboration and how it is changing the world.

This year’s conference will be held in Skövde, Sweden, on 20-22 August 2019. A Doctoral Symposium will take place on 19 August 2019.

OpenSym 2019 will be held at the University of Skövde, Sweden on 20-22 August 2019. Research and community presentations and performances will be accompanied by keynotes, invited speakers, and a social program. Skövde is located between Vänern and Vättern, the two largest lakes in Sweden. This part of the country is known for its beautiful landscapes, with wide fields, forests and many lakes. Skövde is situated on the main railway line between Stockholm and Göteborg, and is easily reachable by high-speed train connections.

A Doctoral Symposium will also be held on 19 August 2019, the day before the conference begins.

This conference provides a platform for researchers and practitioners from a variety of domains to share insights and ideas relevant to understanding open collaboration in its many forms. The open space track is a key ingredient of the event that distinguishes OpenSym from other conferences. It is an integral part of the program that makes it easy to talk to other researchers and practitioners and to stretch your imagination and conversations beyond the limits of your own discipline, exposing you to the full breadth of open collaboration research. The open space track is entirely participant-organized, is open for everyone, and requires no submission or review.
