Any and all information on the logistics for running a satellite event in conduction with the main OpenCon 2014 meeting will be provided below.

Schedule and Agenda – [More coming soon]

The webcast part of the conference will run from approximately 9:00AM EST till around 6:00PM EST on November 15th and 16th. We will continue to update this section with the agenda as it’s confirmed.

Details on the webcast – [More coming soon]

The keynotes, panels, and some workshops will be webcast live. We’ll include more details on this as they become available. We are currently aiming to have downloadable versions of the sessions made available within 12 hours of the event.

Webcast back-up plans – [More coming soon]

We know webcasts can sometimes go wrong. We’re putting several back-up mechanisms into place in case the feed is interrupted so you won’t be left without something to watch. This will include call in lines, so at least audio could be heard, back-up video streams and finally a list of compelling videos to screen as a final option. Let us know if you have other ideas to add to this list by emailing joe [at] righttoresearch [dot] org.

Keep you in the loop during the conference

On November 15th and 16th, organisers will be available to field any questions and keep satellite events in the loop on everything happening at the conference. If a session is running late, you’ll know. If a speaker cancels at the last moment, you’ll know. If we’re having technical difficulties, we’ll get you a work around as soon as possible.

Conference hashtag will be #opencon14

Reporting back

We’re very interested to hear what happened at any and all satellite events and to see any pictures or video that is taken. We’ll follow up with you after the event to debrief and get suggestions for the next OpenCon.
