Call for Speakers and Poster Presentations

Open Science Conference 2021 (17-19 February 2021, online conference)

https://www.open-science-conference.eu/calls2021/

Please note: The Open Science Conference 2021 will be held entirely online and has been extended to three days due to the digital format.

The Open Science Conference 2021 is the 8th international conference of the Leibniz Research Alliance Open Science. The annual conference is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum for researchers, librarians, practitioners, infrastructure providers, policy makers, and other important stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science.

This year’s conference will especially focus on the effects and impact of (global) crises and associated societal challenges, such as the Corona pandemic or the climate change, to open research practices and science communication in the context of the digitisation of science. And vice versa, how open practices help to cope with crises. Overall, the conference addresses topics around Open Science such as:

 

  • Effects and impact of current crises on open research practices and science communication 
  • Learnings from crises to sustainably ensure the opening of science in the future 
  • Innovations to support Open Science practices and their application and acceptance in scientific communities 
  • Scientific benefit of Open Science practices and their impact in society such as coping with crises 
  • Open Science education and science communication to different target groups in the broad public

This call invites the research community as well as further important stakeholders of the Open Science movement to submit an abstract for one of the following calls.

As the Open Science Conference 2021 will be an entirely online event, all poster presentations and talks will be given in a digital environment.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact osc2021@conftool.comThe submission system will open soon.

  • Reflections on effects and impact of current crises on open research practices and science communication 
  • Lessons learned from crises and approaches to sustainably ensure the opening of science in future 
  • Resume on Open Science practices and their application and acceptance in scientific communities 
  • Overview on existing research on the scientific benefit of Open Science practices and their impact in society such as coping with crises 
  • Overview on Open Science education and science communication to different target groups in the broad public

Please submit your application as PDF including an outline of your talk and the benefit for the conference (not more than 500 words) as well as title, CV (including talks as invited speaker), affiliation, and contact details. Please  note that a submission with more than one speaker is not possible.

  • Conference date: 17-19 February 2021, online conference

Call for Poster Presentations

We invite you to submit project presentations and other contributions covering topics including (but not limited to):

Empirical studies on the effects and impact of crises on open research practices and science communication

Recent innovations to support Open Science practices and their application and acceptance in scientific communities

Empirical studies and use cases about the scientific benefit of Open Science practices and their impact in society such as coping with crises

Best practices dealing with Open Science education and science communication to the broad public

Please submit your abstract as PDF which describes the main idea, the practical relevance, and its innovative, scientific, and/or societal impact. The abstract may not be longer than 500 words. To enable blind review the abstract must be submitted in a fully anonymous format so that the respective PDF (including metadata) does not contain any information that might reveal the  author´s identity, e.g., author name, project name, links to project websites, own publications. Submissions that are not in line with these conditions of anonymity will be rejected and excluded from the review.

All contributing authors should be added in the metadata of the submission system. There is a limit of two submissions per corresponding/first author.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the programme committee and the review board. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present a poster at the conference. The poster session will take place in an appropriate digital environment. The abstract and poster must be submitted and presented in English.

To also contribute to the Open Science movement, the programme committee will publish the scientific justification for acceptance on the conference website. All accepted abstracts as well as corresponding posters will be displayed on the conference website and also be published on Zenodo. All materials must be licensed at least as CC-BY 4.0.

The submission system will open soon.

Important dates:
