It’s been a difficult 16 months for everyone, but the OLF Conference is looking forward to returning in person to the Hyatt Regency Columbus this year. We are pleased to announce that we have a signed contract, and our event will be taking place on December 3 and 4, 2021! We are also investigating ways to stream our content for those who may be outside the United States, or may not be comfortable with traveling then.

OLF stands for Open, Libre, Free and we expect to put together a fantastic set of presentations and other activities in line with those values. Note that our Call for Presentations is open through October 1 – please submit your proposal if you have something to say on the subject!

Registration is not yet open, but please pencil us in on your calendar. Situations are still changing with regard to capacity limits and safety recommendations – we are committed to holding an event that puts a high priority on the health and safety of our attendees. This may result in limited ticket availability; further announcements will be made as we nail down our plans with the venue.

We have missed seeing you in person, and we’re excited to be back! We hope that you can join us on December 3 and 4.
