Call For Proposals

In celebration of Open Access Week, San Jose State University will be hosting its biennial one-day conference on October 23, 2015, on all things Open: Open Access, Open Educational Resources, Open Education. For the conference sessions, we are interested in what worked, what didn't work, and why in areas related to:

  • Open access publishing and institutional repositories
  • Sustainability, scalability, and assessment of open access
  • Open educational resources and open access applications in the classroom
  • Massive open online courses (MOOCs) - copyright issues, assessment, challenges
  • Outreach, promotion, and overcoming resistance to open initiatives

We will consider proposals for individual presentations and panels organized around a theme. Presentations are scheduled for either 60 minutes or 30 minutes. In the final program, 30-minute sessions will be paired. We are also offering a lightning round session consisting of 5- to 10-minute presentations showcasing your best ideas and your most educational failures.

Submit your presentation proposal to:

Deadline for proposals: July 31, 2015
Notification of accepted proposals expected: August 15, 2015
