MIT will host a working summit on the Grand Challenges in Information Science and Scholarly Communication March 19-23, 2018. Inviting experts from across disciplines and sectors, the summit aims to identify critical problems in information science that are solvable within 10 years and which have broad implications across the scholarly community.
Three consecutive 1.5-day workshops will produce draft research agendas in the areas of:
- Scholarly discovery
- Digital curation and preservation
- Open scholarship
Attendance at the workshops is by invitation only. The March 19 opening keynote address is open to the MIT community, and all three keynote addresses will be live-streamed.
