The first Open Prosthetics conference will take place August 18-20, 2017, in Portland, Oregon. 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.
The conference is being made possible by generous funding from the Fetzer Institute. We will have a limited budget for travel to the conference for interested individuals. Please contact us if you need help attending.
