2–5 June 2019 6th World Conference on Research Integrity

The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

The 6th World Conference on Research Integrity is the largest and most significant international conference on research integrity. Since the first conference in Lisbon in 2007, it has given researchers, teachers, funding agencies, government officials, journal editors, senior administrators, and research students opportunities to share experiences and to discuss and promote integrity in research. The conference is now a biennial event, and the University of Hong Kong and RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia are proud to co-organize the next world conference. The theme of the 6th World Conference is “New Challenges for Research Integrity”. It is hoped that the Conference will advance discussions on such key issues as open data, open access and other moves towards transparency in research; replication, reproducibility and research waste; managing research misconduct; education on the responsible conduct of research; and integrity in innovation and impact.

19–20 March 2013 Beyond the PDF2

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Scholarly communication across all disciplines is changing profoundly under the influence of new technologies. New models, tools and standards are being developed that aim to enhance, enable or entirely replace formerly ingrained forms of scholarly communication, including publications, courses, conferences and policy. The Beyond the PDF conference brings together scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders in a lively forum, not just to broaden awareness of current efforts across disciplines, but to define the future through discussions, challenge projects, demonstrations and seeding new partnerships and collaborations. Individually and collectively, we aim to bring about a change in modern scholarly communications through the effective use of information technology. Beyond the PDF is organized by FORCE11, a group of stakeholders that arose organically from the first Beyond the PDFworkshop, held at the University of California, San Diego, in 2011, and a follow on workshop held atDagstuhl that same year. We will actively engage the membership of FORCE11 to shape and evolve this and future workshops, as the conference itself provides a platform for those interested in creating new modes of conference organization and participation. FORCE11 and the Beyond the PDF conference are supported by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
