🙋‍♀️ About Unconference Roundtables

Roundtables are a format of open forum discussions designed to illuminate common questions and challenges in a particular field. They serve as a collaborative platform where participants can come together to explore solutions, share best practices, and collectively overcome obstacles. In these sessions, the meeting notes are taken with great care to ensure anonymity and inclusivity. These notes are then shared in the OSPOlogyLive repository under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC-BY 4.0) license. This open-access approach allows for the broader community to benefit from the insights and solutions generated during these discussions, ensuring that the knowledge and ideas developed are freely available for everyone to reuse and build upon. Roundtable sessions are led by community participants. These sessions are divided into two categories: Featured Roundtable Sessions and Unconference Roundtables. Featured Roundtable Sessions are pre-defined topics. In the unconference Roundtables, the topics for these sessions are elected by the attendees on the same day, allowing for the exploration of current and emerging issues that are most relevant to the participants.
