Crossref LIVE

Crossref LIVE is a program of events around the world that aims to deepen your understanding of our foundational scholarly infrastructure.

Come to our free-to-attend events where we open our doors for the whole community, welcoming publishers, librarians, researchers, funders, technology providers, and members alike to share their thoughts and to find out more about who we are and how to get the most out of Crossref.

Eventbrite - Crossref #LIVE17, Singapore, November 14-15

A two-day annual event

A mixture of conference plenaries and interactive sessions. This two day event, being held for the first time in Asia, give you the opportunity to hear our plans and from our community, as well as to mingle with our team and special guests, ask questions, try out our services, troubleshoot, and get exclusive previews of some of the exciting things we’re working on.

Get a flavor of the event by browsing some photos and presentations from LIVE16 in London.

Crossref LIVE locals

As well as the two-day Crossref LIVE annual event, we’re scaling up our program of local LIVE events which take place all around the world to cater to our global membership, with a program tailored to each country. These one-day seminars aim to cover the key elements of our organization and our services, but more importantly to have conversations with attendees and get feedback on what we’re doing right, and what could be better.

Over the past few years, we’ve hosted events in collaboration with our members in Shanghai, Vilnius, Seoul, Washington DC, Pretoria, Campinas, and most recently Campinas, São Paulo, Beijing and Warsaw. Due to their success, we’re continuing these events into 2017 and beyond, and will add details to our events page as these are confirmed.

We’d love you to join us!

Interested in a Crossref LIVE event near you?

We’re always looking for suggestions from communities interested in Crossref, and partners who can help us manage the logistics of hosting an event in your area. We aim to discuss topics that are relevant and tailored to your community, and you can help steer us on that.

Pooling our Crossref knowledge and delegates’ expertise means everyone can get the most out of the day. We’ll deal with promoting the event, registration, agenda/shareable content, costs, Crossref staff and speakers, and handouts and materials for the day itself (food, notebooks, pens, and all that good stuff). We’ll ask for your local expertise on venues, sharing information and encouraging participation.


Contact us to volunteer as a host or suggest a LIVE local near you.
