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 what we do.

Crossref LIVE

A two-part annual event featuring:

  • A Mashup Day of interactive activities giving attendees time to mingle with our team and special guests, to ask questions, try out our services, troubleshoot, and get exclusive previews of some of the exciting things we’re working on.

  • A conference day with distinguished keynote speakers from the industry and important updates about our services where we share our vision and strategies for the future.

This format aims, first and foremost, to promote interaction between attendees and have valuable time just to chat rather than run from one talk to the next. Unwind from the day and stay for the post-meeting receptions to keep the conversation going.

Get a flavor of our LIVE16 event in London by checking out photos and presentations from both days, and we’ll hope to see you in Singapore for LIVE17!

Crossref LIVE locals

As well as the two day Crossref LIVE event, we’re scaling up our program of local LIVE events which take place all around the world to cater to our global membership. 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 and most recently Campinas and São Paulo. 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 LIVE events and partners who can help us manage the logistics of hosting an event in your area. We aim to speak on 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).

Contact us to volunteer as a host or suggest an event.
