About the Conference

The OpenAthens Conference attracts over 120 international publishers and library professionals from a wide range of sectors including: education and research, healthcare, government, charity, publishing and commercial. Anyone with an interest in identity and access management is welcome to attend.

We want our international conference audience to feel inspired and enthused about the sessions they participated in during the day and to benefit from the valuable connections they make through networking.
