Now in its 11th year, the OASPA annual conference is a major scholarly publishing conference that brings the open access community together to discuss new developments and innovations in scholarly publishing, and unite in our shared goal to enable research around the world to be openly accessible.
As in previous years, the Program Committee has set aside sessions within the conference program to provide opportunities for presenting projects, ideas or initiatives relating to open access publishing. This year, organisations and individuals are invited to submit a proposal to us for ‘Show & Tell’ presentations. These are 10-minute talks showcasing new projects, ideas or initiatives.
All proposals should be submitted by June 12th 2019 at the latest to firstname.lastname@example.org. A brief description of your proposal is sufficient at this stage. Please note that while we will be able to cover the registration costs for the authors of successful proposals, we are not able to cover any of the travel expenses that may be incurred in attending the conference.
If you aren’t selected for a Show and Tell then there may be an opportunity for you to present a brief Lightning Talk and poster on your topic at the conference.
Recordings, slides and posters from previous conferences, as well as information on how to register, can be found on our website here.
We look forward to receiving your suggestions!
