The call for submissions to the Open Hardware Summit has been extended July 9. Enjoy the fireworks and send us your ideas. We want to hear from you!

The OHS brings together an inquisitive and active community of open hardware hackers, manufacturers and theorists for a full day of talks, poster presentations, and after hours socializing. We welcome proposals on:

  • Digital fabrication
  • Wearables, e-textiles, and fashion tech
  • Quantified-self hardware
  • Means of supporting collaboration and community interaction
  • On demand and low volume manufacturing
  • Distributed development and its relationship to physical goods
  • Software design tools (CAD / CAM)
  • DIY technology
  • Ways of sharing
  • Robotics
  • Business models
  • Competition and collaboration
  • Sustainability of open hardware products (e.g. how to unmake things)
  • Industrial design
  • Open hardware in the enterprise
  • Specific product domains: e.g. science, agriculture, communications, medicine
  • Legal and intellectual property implications of open-source hardware
  • Open hardware in education
  • Addressing the gender imbalance or other types of under-representation in the open hardware community
  • Any other topic you think relates to openness and hardware. We want to hear all about it!
