The University of Edinburgh has been announced as host for the FORCE2019 annual conference, which will be held on 16th and 17th October 2019 at the BT Murrayfield Rugby Stadium, with pre-conference workshops at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel on 15th October.  

FORCE11 Chairman Dan O’Donnell commented:

“FORCE2019 is an exciting opportunity to connect the worldwide community with the special energy and passion of our colleagues in Edinburgh, and the many interesting projects in Scotland – like the Digital Curation Centre and Edina. We thank the University of Edinburgh for partnering with us. We’re looking forward!”

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 realisation of promising new ideas and identifying new potential collaborators.
