Opencast Summit 2021 will take place between 6th and 9th April 2021. It will spread through 4 days (instead of the usual 3 days).


Opencast Summit 2021 will be hosted by TU Graz. However, there will be no physical presence: the event will take place online. We are planning to use BigBlueButton for the sessions and potentially other applications for coffee breaks or evening events.

About the summit

The Opencast community is an international collaboration of individuals, higher education institutions and organisations working together to discuss, develop, define and document best practices for the management of audiovisual content in academia.

The summit is dedicated to the use and management of academic video in general and Opencast in particular.

Evening activities

Although there will be no physical presence, we would like to organise online events which will potentially include live music performances. You can participate in these events ad-hoc. No prior registration is necessary. Watch this space for updated information.
