  • Conference Call
  • The Open Access Schol­arly Pub­lish­ers Asso­ci­a­tion (OASPA) is pleased to announce that this year our annual con­fer­ence will take place in Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal. The 9th Con­fer­ence on Open Access Schol­arly Pub­lish­ing (COASP) will be held at the Altis Grand Hotel on Sep­tem­ber 2021, 2017. A pre-​conference recep­tion for del­e­gates will be held on the evening of Tues­day 19th September.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Now in its 9th year, COASP is a vital con­fer­ence for the open access pub­lish­ing com­mu­nity to gather to develop and advance dis­cus­sions, rela­tion­ships, pol­icy and research around open access pub­lish­ing. As in pre­vi­ous years, del­e­gates from a wide range of back­grounds will be brought together for an excit­ing range of pan­els, events, and net­work­ing opportunities.

    We are proud to con­sis­tently offer global, diverse per­spec­tives on pub­lish­ing each year, and wel­come atten­dees at all stages of their careers who work in pub­lish­ing, librar­i­an­ship, gov­ern­ment, higher edu­ca­tion, fund­ing agen­cies, non­prof­its, and other affil­i­ated indus­tries. Com­mu­nity and col­lab­o­ra­tion is at the heart of open access pub­lish­ing, and we are excited to offer both again at COASP this year for all those work­ing in open access around the world.

    As in pre­vi­ous years, the Pro­gram Com­mit­tee have set aside one of the ses­sions within the con­fer­ence pro­gram to pro­vide six Show & Tell oppor­tu­ni­ties for show­cas­ing new projects, ideas or ini­tia­tives relat­ing to open access pub­lish­ing. Organ­i­sa­tions are invited to sub­mit a pro­posal to us for one of the six avail­able 10 minute pre­sen­ta­tions. All pro­pos­als should be sub­mit­ted by 8th May 2017 at the latest.

    The Pro­gram Com­mit­tee will then review the sug­ges­tions by the begin­ning of June. Please note that while we will be able to cover the reg­is­tra­tion costs for the authors of suc­cess­ful pro­pos­als, we are not able to cover any of the travel expenses that may be incurred in attend­ing the conference.

    If you aren’t selected for a Show and Tell then there may be an oppor­tu­nity for you to present a brief Light­ning Talk and poster on your topic at the conference.
