Have you recently spotted something significant in the world of Openness?

Some significant Open Source software, Open License fonts, Open Hardware evolution, or an interesting evolution of the Open Source development process?

Open Data initiatives, Open Publishing maybe, scientific projects being Open with their data?

Come along to the Open Mic evening of the BCS Open Source Specialist Group and tell us. We have already been advised that we’ll be hearing contributions on open data and open museum contributions in the Wikipedia community, open risk and a couple of other topics.

Sign up for free (as in beer) so we can cater for you, and let us know if you intend to contribute some mic-time so we can sort out a slot for you.

Registration is essential (see booking link above), Powerpoint is not, in fact if you can speak without slides we would be grateful. The session will be audio-recorded and written up.

  1.  In the interests of the most efficient use of time, please do not assume that it will be possible to use projected presentation slides or demonstrations. We may be able to sort something out if projection is really necessary, but it is best to pretend that the Open Mic session will be conducted like a radio studio discussion.
  2.  This meeting will be audio recorded, to be shared with others either in podcast or transcript form. By registering for this event you consent to potentially being included in this recording.

If you wish to give a microtalk within this event, please answer the brief question contained within this booking process re the aspect of open you wish to talk about

 N.B. Please note that registration for this event is mandatory. Admittance will be refused if you have not registered on the BCS Booking system​.
