Printer-friendly version

FORCE2018 Conference will be held in Montreal, Canada on October 11 & 12, 2018 at the New Residence Conference Center at McGill University (with pre-conference workshops held on October 10 at Concordia University's Webster Library)

The FORCE 2018 conference is 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. Our common goal is to maximize efficiency and accessibility.

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.
