Events: PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference

August 07, 2015

The following is on behalf of the SFU Library.

The Public Knowledge Project at the SFU Library is holding its bi-annual conference next week, August 13-14, at Harbour Centre. This conference will be a great opportunity for participants to engage on the topics related to building open infrastructure and programs for digital humanities, publishing, and libraries. 

This may be the only opportunity for some time to attend the PKP Scholarly Publishing conference in Vancouver, since the conference changes location every two-years. Participating in the conference is an excellent way to catch up on emerging trends and developments in scholarly communications, network with an international group of public knowledge professionals, and support this local initiative with a world-class reputation. If you are interested in the academic publishing process, open source software, and libraries, consider dropping by for the keynote speakers and lightning talk sessions. 

PKP has several free tickets available to the PKP conference day on Thursday, August 13, for students who may want to attend the speaker talks, panel, and lightning talk sessions. Additionally, PKP's Annual General Meeting on the morning of Friday, August 14, is open to the public, providing a great chance to get involved with the Public Knowledge Project.
