Proposals for presentations on new or creative approaches to research communications and e-scholarship are invited to #FORCE2018 – to be held at McGill University in Montreal, Canada on October 11<x-apple-data-detectors://0> & 12, 2018.
FORCE2018 promises to be a different kind of meeting, where stakeholders come to the table for an open discussion, on an even playing field, to talk about changing the ways scholarly and scientific information is communicated, shared and used.
Researchers, publishers, librarians, computer scientists, informaticians, funders, educators, citizens, patients, and others attend the FORCE meeting with a view to supporting the realisation of promising new ideas and identifying new potential collaborators.
The theme of FORCE2018 is engagement. Proposals should emphasise how presenters are engaging their communities or how they will engage FORCE2018 participants. This might mean an interactive presentation, showcasing the tangible impact of your work, encouraging the FORCE2018 community to join your efforts, or another way in which others are engaged.
