The 2019 Scholarly Communication Symposium will be held on Monday, April 15, 2019 at UNC Greensboro, North Carolina. This annual symposium provocatively explores particular issues in the evolving landscape of scholarly communications, bringing together researchers, technologists, librarians, and other stakeholders in the scholarly communications ecosystem.
This year UNC Greensboro is partnering with the Educopia Institute to host the symposium as a joint event. The 2019 symposium will explore the ways that the impacts of digital scholarship are intertwined with and dependent on the infrastructure underlying such efforts. Without strong and persistent organizational and technical systems to undergird them, digital scholarship may become a flash in the pan. National experts will speak to the issues of creating and sustaining infrastructure for research data management, digital humanities, and online publishing.
The symposium keynote speaker will be Dr. David Eltis, renowned creator of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade Database. The closing speaker will be Dr. Amy Friedlander of the NSF Office of Cyberinfrastructure. See the symposium website for additional presenters.
