APE 2021

For the first time in the 16-year history of the APE Conference, we will not have a waiting list! APE 2021 will be virtual this year.

The APE Conference has been the first publishing event of the year since 2006. With an independent, interdisciplinary approach and a program that is created by and for the stakeholders in scholarly communications, the APE Conference has – according to the Scholarly Kitchen, “brought together people with varying opinions and perspectives, that are not afraid to share them.” The conference is geared towards open minds.

The APE 2021 Conference will be a virtual conference, which not only allows us to reach more people, but we will also offer very attractive ticket options. The sessions will be live-streamed and will be available afterwards to ticket holders. Our new full sponsor Morressier in Berlin is our virtual conference organizer.

The APE 2021 Program Committee is very proud to present the FINAL Program, which can be viewed here: APE 2021 – Program
