Our 2020 conference will build on the success of last year’s event by providing librarians and information professionals with deeper knowledge and understanding of communication strategies for open research.
In an increasingly open world – encompassing open research, open science and open data – the biggest challenges are around educating researchers about the changes they have to make to their working practices.
At CISPC 2020, we will be bringing together speakers from around the world that have developed effective scholarly communication strategies within their own institutions, and who will share their experiences and expertise with fellow scholarly communication professionals.
We’re also increasing the time available for table discussions, enabling delegates to share and learn from each other in an informal environment.
