The Digital Agenda: The Road Ahead for Scholarly Communication, 19 - 20 January 2016.
APE 2017 in Berlin, 17 - 18 January 2017
Join us in an ongoing international debate about the Future of Scholarly Communication, research output, big data, reproducibility, quality control, academic and scientific publishing, electronic libraries and repositories, open access, permanent identifiers, information infrastructure, policies and reputation and – last but not least – sustainable models and long-term financing. Special attention for new dotcoms. The Closing Panel is about ‘Policing Science or Science Police? An Open Discussion on the Role of Journals in Research Ethics’.
Please note: all APE Conferences so far had a waiting list. If you are interested to participate, please do register in time and inform colleagues and friends to do the same. We have reserved a limited number of hotel rooms.
The APE Conferences aim at a better understanding of scholarly communication and the role of information in science, education and society. They encourage the debate about the future of value-added scientific publishing, information dissemination and access to scientific results and offer an independent forum for 'open minds'. Participants have enjoyed this very open atmosphere in the Academy of Sciences at the famous Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte. Participants are: academic, educational, scientific, technological, medical, legal and professional publishers, university presses, researchers, authors, editors, librarians, teachers, learned and professional societies and associations, funding agencies, politicians and policy makers, subscription agencies and booksellers, recruiting agencies and technology providers. APE Conferences provide an inventory and show the way ahead in a collaborative effort involving all stakeholders. At the same time they are open for a review of new enabling technologies that may cope with new requirements and also look at sustainability given the changes of behaviour. As always there will be a lot of time for discussions and meetings with friends and colleagues.
The number of participants is limited to 200!
The Conference Dinner will be offered in Restaurant “Refugium”, under the French Dome on Gendarmenmarkt opposite the Academy.
Members of STM, ICSTI, ALPSP, SSP, Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels/AKEP, DGI and GI enjoy a general discount of 25%. Group and academic rates on request.
Please do not forget to reserve your hotel room in time! We cooperate with NH Hotel Berlin Mitte.
