A typical day at the Open Science Conference

The Open Science Conference (OSC) will take place in Kigali (Rwanda) and online, from 23-27 October 2023.
The Conference Session topics comprise the 40 oral and poster sessions that will take place from Monday to Thursday. Additionally Poster clusters, designed to bring together a community working on a specific topic within the broader conference themes, will help participants to organize their poster viewing and to provide a forum for discussion about the cluster topic. Posters will form a very important part of the OSC; all posters will be uploaded to a virtual poster gallery several weeks before the Conference to allow for pre-Conference viewing and virtual poster sessions.
