Attendee Registration

Registration is now open. The goal of this event is to foster conversations across different areas of specialization and, as a result, we are limiting the registration to 100 attendees. There’s been significant initial interest in this event since our first announcement and we expect to sell out quickly. This is planned as an in-person event, COVID-willing, but we’ll move to virtual if we must.

Open Work in Academia Summit is presented by Open@RIT and is sponsored, in part, by a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Code of Conduct

The Summit on Open Work in Academia is an RIT event and all attendees, speakers, and exhibitors fall under and are bound by that code on and offsite during the event.

The RIT  Code of Ethical Conduct and Compliance (the “Code”), along with the university’s Core Values, Honor Code, Diversity Statement, and Commitment to Environmental Sustainability, provides a framework for acceptable standards of behavior and reinforces the principle that all members of the RIT community, including university officials and the Board of Trustees, have a responsibility to ensure that RIT conducts its business and pursues its mission ethically, legally, and with integrity.  Other university policies provide specific rules and regulations that govern the conduct of university community members, and the Code does not modify the application or enforcement of those policies in any way.
