The Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association, OASPA, will hold the 9th Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing (COASP) at the Altis Grand Hotel on the 20th and 21st September, 2017.
Now established as a key event in the scholarly publishing calendar, COASP brings together the open access community and major stakeholders to discuss critical issues, developments, innovations, and best practices in the industry. Further information on the event is available on our website.
As in previous years, the Program Committee have set aside one of the sessions within the conference program to provide six Show & Tell opportunities for showcasing new projects, ideas or initiatives relating to open access publishing. Organisations are invited to submit a proposal to us for one of the six available 10 minute presentations.
All proposals should be submitted by 8th May 2017 at the latest to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Program Committee will then review the suggestions by the beginning of June. 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 can be found on our website here.
We look forward to receiving your suggestions!
