• #FuturePub 8 – New Developments in Scientific Collaboration Tech – Full line up of speakers confirmed

    Posted by John on August 25, 2016

    The first futurepub event was held at the British Library in January 2014

    After a great turnout at our last #FuturePub in May, and given that the London ALPSP conference is coming up soon, we're teaming up with Scholarly Social for a pre-ALPSP event on September 13th!

    The evenings are designed to be fun and informal - we aim to give opportunities to those working on new ideas and innovations a chance to present and get feedback on their ideas. And did I mention the free pizza?

    This is the eighth #FuturePub – we're now described as "a staple of the London science tech/publishing scene" (thanks Eva!) – but in case this is your first time, here's how it works:

    1. Seven quick-fire talks cover a range of new and exciting developments in science & publishing tech.

    2. These all fit into a one hour slot (from 7-8pm), to keep the evening fast-paced and fun!

    3. The rest of the evening is then open for discussions and conversations over drinks – we expect a great mixture of attendees from the research, publishing and start-up communities.
