The FORCE2019 Conference brings together a diverse group of people interested in changing the way in which scholarly and scientific information is communicated and shared. The goal is to maximize efficiency and accessibility. The conference is non-traditional, with all stakeholders coming to the table for open discussion on an even playing field in support of innovation and coordination across perspectives. The FORCE11 conference draws 250-350 attendees from around the world and this year conference will take place at University of Edinburgh, October 15-17, 2019
