Sponsors and funders have always been a big part of the Force11 community; in acknowledgement of this support, we have designed packages that will allow for maximum visibility before, during, and after the events.
Our first event this year is the FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute (FSCI). This will be the third year for our FSCI event, to be held on August 5-9 at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). Our other event will be our annual Force11 Conference, which will be announced shortly.
The FORCE11 Scholarly Communication Institute (FSCI) is a summer school that helps people learn how to navigate this new world. Its instructors include leading practitioners from the world of research, libraries, publishing, and research administration. Courses range from basic orientations through classes in the most advanced topics. Its goal is to provide a friendly, community-based way of learning about and keeping up to date on the latest trends, technologies, and opportunities that are transforming the way science and scholarship is done.
The FORCE2019 Conference will bring 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. As always, the conference will be a place for all stakeholders to come to the table for open discussion on an even playing field in support of innovation and coordination across perspectives.
