The first Open Prosthetics conference will take place in August of 2017, in Portland, Oregon. The exact date will be final within a couple of weeks. The conference will be a self-organized "Unconference," where the attendees will set and carry out the agenda dynamically and on site. A wiki page for the conference allows attendees to begin this self-organization in advance, in the style of Foo Camp and Bar Camp.
The unconference represents the best parts of conferences with fewer of the downsides. Imagine an entire conference consisting of the interesting sidebar conversations you wish could continue taking place in the lobby and hallways outside the conference rooms, without any death by powerpoint.
We will have a limited budget for travel to the conference for interested individuals. Please contact us if you need help attending.
