2nd World OER Congress Logo

Call for Exhibitors

Proposals for Exhibitions/Demos are invited in the following topics following the main Congress theme Mainstreaming OER Practices:

  • (1) Users’ capacity to access, reuse and share OER
  • (2) Issues related to language and culture
  • (3) Ensuring inclusive and equitable access to quality OER
  • (4) The need to change business models
  • (5) The development of supportive policy environments

Exhibitions may address one or more topics, but they should be organised under a unified theme. Exhibitions are expected to show the demonstration of novel approaches and their application in OER, but could be extended to represent OER in the context of Open Education.

The Exhibition will be open during the entire conference, from 17 September to 20 September 2017.
