Dear colleagues, 

You can now sign up to join us for the next installment of the popular, solutions-focused FORCE11 meeting – in Edinburgh October 16-17, with workshops on the 15th. 

We’re meeting this year at the historic BT Murrayfield Rugby Stadium. So, in addition to all the thought-provoking talks and sessions, you’ll also have the chance to take in a little sport history. 

We’ve announced two of our keynotes already – Arfon Smith and Rachel Bruce – and the Program Committee is hard at work on the rest of the program now. 

If you’ve enjoyed past FORCE11 meetings, or haven’t made it to one yet but heard it’s a great meeting, register now. Early-bird rates are available until September 1.

More information is available on the meeting website. Questions and comments are always welcome, to [log in to unmask] 

We’ll look forward to seeing you there!

The FORCE11 annual conference is a different kind of meeting, where stakeholders come together – or scrummage – for an open discussion, on an even playing field, to talk about changing the ways scholarly and scientific information is communicated, shared and used. Researchers, publishers, librarians, computer scientists, informaticians, funders, educators, citizens, and others attend the FORCE11 meeting with a view to supporting the realization of promising new ideas and identifying new potential collaborators.
