FORCE2018 is coming to Montreal this October.

Are you a researcher or a librarian? You might be a publisher, or a funder of research.

Whatever your position, you have an important role to ensure research is easily found and shared so that everyone can benefit from the latest results.

The FORCE meeting is a place where communities come together.

What is FORCE2018?

FORCE2018 is a different conference. It promotes open discussions on an open future for scholarly communications. It looks beyond the publication to the needs of all involved in the research enterprise, including the producers and the users of research.

The wide variety of this year’s talks cover many themes, including

  *   Open Data, Open Source and Open Scholarship
  *   Research classification and interdisciplinary research
  *   New ways to share research results
  *   Reproducibility
  *   Community outreach and impact

Sometimes controversial. Often different. Always inspiring.

Why else should you attend?

What makes the FORCE2018 conference special, and unmissable, is the opportunity to connect and collaborate with committed people from across sectors. We may approach things from different perspectives, but we all care about research.

We all want to realise the benefits of enhanced access to the world’s knowledge.

So, please join us for three days in fabulous Montreal, Canada and engage in great conversation.

FORCE2018 Conference will be held in Montreal, Canada on October 11 & 12, 2018 at the New Residence Conference Center at McGill University. Pre-conference workshops held on October 10 at Concordia University's Webster Library. You can check out the full schedule here<>.
