Walking Together to Solve Emerging Health Challenges
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
Please join us virtually for OMRS20!
30th November - 4th December 2020
This year's Implementers Meeting celebrates and explores how we come together as a community to respond to new and existing health challenges faced by people worldwide.
ABOUT THE EVENT
This year, the OpenMRS Community will gather virtually for our 2020 Implementer's Meeting.
Who Should Attend
People new to OpenMRS who want to connect to others using the platform around the world.
Experienced OpenMRS implementers who want to share their experiences and learn from others.
OpenMRS platform developers – anyone building systems to integrate with or extend OpenMRS.
Developers of related health and healthcare application software.
Health practitioners, researchers and publishers.
Any other implementor of OpenMRS and its distributions.
Why You Should Attend
This event provides an opportunity for developers to collaborate and improve their technical skills in OpenMRS, implementers to share their best practices from implementations, and users to propose and prioritize their top features in future releases of the software.
OpenMRS community members who usually travel to our host-country might suffer from jet lag. With a virtual conference, we're working on a schedule that accommodates most time zones - without any need to suffer from "virtual jet lag!" Conference days will begin at 1pm UTC and the last session will end at 6pm UTC.

We use an unconferencing format, which means the people attending the conference determine the session topics. There are two ways to propose an unconferencing session topic:

Virtual Site Visit
This year, we're moving OMRS20 to a virtual conference format.
There are still some costs associated with hosting a virtual conference, such as planning services, conference platform, etc. This year's budget comes to ~$16k. This year, we don’t have any set registration fees. To remain cost-neutral, we're asking that everyone who registers to pay what they wish. This means that you can pay as little or as much as you want. If you can’t pay anything right now, that’s fine - you are more than welcome! If you can pay something, we really appreciate it as it will help us cover our costs (mainly related to conference planning and logistics).
Whether you pay or not, we still need you to complete a registration form so that we can send you a meeting invitation with conferencing information.

OMRS20 t-shirts are available! For $20, you can order your t-shirt and we'll make arrangements to ship it to you. Please note that your t-shirt may not arrive before OMRS20 begins.
