Meet up

We attend, speak at, and participate in a number of community events each year such as conferences, workshops, hack days, and seminars.

Crossref LIVE logo

We also host our own in-person educational events around the world under a program known as “Crossref LIVE”. Crossref LIVEs are free to attend and open to all who want to learn more about our services, with a program tailored to each country or segment of the community. At these one-day events we also build in time to have conversations with attendees and get feedback on what we’re doing right, and what could be better.

Interested in a Crossref LIVE 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.
