In addition the conference will feature lightning talks that explore the theme of tensions between local ways of knowing and globally-imposed standards, and share insights on local academic citizenship and global systems of knowledge production, evaluation, and dissemination.

We invite and encourage colleagues globally to join us for the interesting talks and accompanying asynchronous discussions about timely matters in open science communications. The program will be distributed throughout the day, with sessions starting at 9AM and closing at 8PM UTC.

We are keeping costs low and offering a range of registration fees to make the conference as accessible as possible. If this will still cause a barrier to participation, please email to discuss your circumstances.
