We’ll be accepting proposals through Friday, April 7, at 11:59pm ET.
Thinking about a session idea for SRCCON 2017? We’ve put together a proposals guide to help you out.
On August 3 & 4, SRCCON will return to the McNamara Alumni Center at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, our home for SRCCON in 2015.
Tickets to SRCCON are distributed via lottery. Once tickets are sold, we’ll open up a discounted block of hotel rooms at the Commons Hotel located directly next to our SRCCON venue.
SRCCON is a hands-on conference, full of conversations and workshops focused on the practical challenges news technology and data teams encounter every day. We work to make it an inclusive and welcoming event where people can feel comfortable digging into complex problems. Last year SRCCON included more than 300 attendees and 50 sessions that covered a wide range of topics, from tech strategies to workplace culture struggles.
The majority of SRCCON participants are developers, designers, and data analysts who work in newsrooms. We also enthusiastically welcome attendees from closely allied fields like civic tech, mapping, open data, and others who are curious about journalism and excited to share their expertise at a journalism-centric conference.
Our participants represent organizations ranging from massive to tiny, and come from all over the US and many other countries. Each year, we particularly welcome journalists and allies from the city hosting SRCCON, and we’re working to build better remote-participation options for those who can’t attend in person.

While all of our SRCCON news will be going out on our mailing list, if you want to contact us, we'd love to hear from you:
SRCCON is produced by OpenNews, an organization built to connect a network of developers, designers, journalists and editors to collaborate on open technologies and processes within journalism.
The “src” in SRCCON stands for “Source,” as in “view source.” We pronounce it “Source-con,” but you can say it however you want.
