FORCE2021 SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Printer-friendly version

The FORCE2021 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 a diverse group of 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. Attendees are largely made up of participants with a stake in scholarly communication (eg, librarians, funders, publishers, researchers, and other supporting organizations). This year the conference will take place in San Sebastián, Spain, October 18-20, 2021.

Sponsors and funders have always been a big part of the FORCE11 community; in acknowledgment of this support, we have designed packages that will allow for maximum visibility before, during, and after the FORCE 2021 Conference.
