OpenSym 2020

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 situation, OpenSym 2020 will be an online conference.

The 16th International Symposium on Open Collaboration (OpenSym 2020) 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.

Given the global developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, the OpenSym 2020 will be held as a virtual, online event, at the original planned date, from 25 – 27 August 2020. While a physical gathering would obviously be preferred, the current situation requires us to adapt.
