The Open Hardware Summit is the annual conference organized by the Open Source Hardware Association a 501(c)(3) not for profit charity. It is the world’s first comprehensive conference on open hardware; a venue and community in which we discuss and draw attention to the rapidly growing Open Source Hardware movement.
The Open Hardware Summit was founded in 2010 by Alicia Gibb and Ayah Bdeir with support from Peter Semmelhack and Bug Labs in its founding years. Read more about the history of the organization and feel free to contact us with any questions.
From 2013-2018 the Open Hardware Summit was chaired by Addie Wagenknecht. In 2020, we welcomed Rolly Seth as chair, and the Summit was held virtually in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. For the 2021 Summit, which is also being conducted virtually, our chair is libi rose striegl. The Summit chair also serves as a board member.
Tickets are available and for sale on Eventbrite. Standard and Backer tickets must be purchased by March 25 to help ensure your goodie bag arrives before the summit.
