MARCH 2014 SPARC Open Access Meeting

 Registration is closed for this event
Kansas City

SPARC is pleased to announce that the 2014 Open Access Meeting theme will be "Convergence"

The SPARC 2014 Open Access meeting will be held March 3 & 4 at the Kansas City Intercontinental Hotel. 

The past year has seen growing momentum on many fronts of the movement towards "open". Advances in the areas of open access, open data, and open educational resources have grown exponentially since the last SPARC Open Access Meeting was convened in 2012.  As this push for greater openness continues, these three fronts are converging in interesting and potentially transformative ways.  Join us as leaders from the library community, academia, industry, student community, and other research avenues discuss how open access, open data, and open educational resources are intersecting, and the impact this convergence might have on research and discovery.  The meeting is designed to emphasize collaborative actions that stakeholders can take to positively impact publishing, policy, digital repositories, author rights, and licensing.


Hotel reservations are now open.  For meeting rates and more information please see our hotel information page.
