Press Release | OSEHRA | March 15, 2018

Plans for our 7th Annual Summit, The Open Road for Government Innovation, are well underway! This year's event will be held from July 18 - 20, 2018 and the Program Committee is looking forward to receiving an abundance of abstracts from the community. All are invited to participate and submit their proposals for presentation, poster, and/or roundtable discussion. All submissions are due no later than Friday, April 13, 2018.

An exciting and robust schedule is planned again this year. We are excited to welcome numerous government agencies to this year's agenda and plenary session. In addition to representatives from Veterans Affairs, individuals from the Department of Homeland Security, Defense Digital Services, and the National Security Agency will all be present to discuss their open source initiatives, challenges, and successes with attendees. Track presentations are scheduled for Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning. The number of breakout sessions are limited this year, so we encourage everyone to submit their proposal as soon as possible. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your advancements!
