The FORCE11 Annual Conference was first staged in 2011, and the most recent in-person event happened in 2019 in Edinburgh, Scotland. FORCE11’s conference has always been a unique forum where researchers and scholarly communications specialists from publishing organizations, libraries and intermediaries can gather to discuss the future of research communication. After moving to a virtual footing because of the pandemic, with the generous support of the UCLA Library, FORCE11 conference will be returning to an in-person format in 2024! This conference draws research professionals, librarians, administrators, publishers, and technical support into one space to discuss the latest developments in the field, and discuss strategies for the more effective application of Open Science programs and initiatives.
In coordination with the UCLA Library, FORCE11 will conduct three events – FSCI virtual (July 22-26), FSCI In-Person (July 29-31) and the FORCE11 Annual Conference (Aug 1-3).
