Working together to improve global access to research

2017 Program

The main focus of this conference is high-level delegates working together in diverse workgroups to answer key questions about scholarly publishing. However, the exact timing and frequency of these workshop meetings and presentations may change in the final version of the conference program. Also, additional time will likely be built into the final program for more full-group discussions of ideas, solutions, and proposals for moving forward. Therefore, as we receive more input from delegates on these matters, this program listing will evolve accordingly.
