Crossref LIVE18 Toronto

Join us in November each year for our free-to-attend global annual meeting where we open our doors to the whole community, welcoming publishers, librarians, researchers, funders, technology providers, and members alike to share ideas and progress. Our annual meeting is also where we announce the results of members’ votes for our Board.

LIVE18 in Toronto, November 13-14, 2018

Save the date! We are pleased to announce that LIVE18 will be held in Toronto, Canada at the Toronto Reference Library located at 789 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario. It will be two days filled with plenary sessions, interactive sessions and entertainment. Invited speakers include:

  • Patricia Cruse, DataCite
  • Kristen Fisher Ratan, CoKo Foundation
  • Stefanie Haustein, University of Ottawa

While we are not recommending any hotels in particular, we have compiled a list of those near the venue (the Toronto Reference Library), for you to consider.

Registration is open.

LIVE17 in Singapore, November 14-15, 2017

We focused on the theme of Metadata + Relations + Infrastructure = Context. We had our fullest program yet, with the broadest representation yet - researchers, editors, journal and book people, publishing execs, librarians, and funders. We talked a lot about relationships: between metadata; between research outputs; and between the scholarly community.

It was two full days packed with a mixture of plenary sessions, the results of our members’ newly elected board members, and interactive activities and entertainment.
