You must go beyond attending your FSCI course to get the true benefits of the institute.  Our program committee not only chooses the courses we offer each year – they also assemble plenary events that tie into our theme and overall curricular goals. Details of these plenary events are coming together right now, and more details will be posted in this space very soon.

Opening Session [Time: Mon 7/25 8:00 PDT/UTC-7]

FSCI begins with opening events for the entire institute, laying out a central thread of ideas and topics to help form discussion in the “virtual hallway.” Opening events are on day 1 (July 25th), before the three days of coursework.

Keynote Speakers

Our program committee is arranging for two sets of keynote speakers to address topics within our theme, Collaboration for Action: Sharing Knowledge Across Boundaries. One will be part of the Opening Session, and the other on the Closing day. Watch this space for further details as these speakers are confirmed.

FORCE11 Working Groups Bazaar [Time: Mon 7/25 11:00 PDT/UTC-7]

This session will explore the FORCE11 working groups, exploring the goals, outputs, and impact of key FORCE11 working groups of the past and present.  We hope to show you the value of forming your own FORCE11 working group to tackle the latest wicked problem! We are confirming participants and will post more details soon.

Closing Session [Time: Fri 7/29 9:00 PDT/UTC-7]

After courses, the closing session is a space for reflection on what we’ve learned from this year’s FSCI, with a focus on the future – what’s next for you in Scholarly Communication, and how we can collaborate, surpass boundaries, and take action.

These plenary events are designed by FSCI organizers and are tied to curricular aims for this year’s institute. Throughout, events and courses will embody our 2022 theme of Collaboration for Action: Sharing Knowledge Across Boundaries

Don’t forget to also dive into the FSCI Community events – which are designed, moderated, and given life by the wider FSCI community.
