Conference Chair: Martin Fenner
Program Chair: Daniel Mietchen
This year’s Force11 Conference will focus on “Changing the Culture” as a theme to guide these discussions. It is intended to create new partnerships and collaborations and to support implementation of ideas generated at the conference and in the FORCE11 working groups. With a focus on dialogue rather than monologues, on diversity both on stage and in the audience, and with a program geared towards turning past experiences with and future visions for scholarly communication into concrete next steps, the FORCE2017 Conference aims to contribute its fair share to changing the scholarly communication landscape. Check out the line-up of Keynote Speakersand topics on the website.

Anyone may submit an application for travel support, however, preference will be given to students and postdocs based on the information provided on the application form. Historically, the application requests received exceed the funding available and we therefore are only able to provide “partial” funding.
