Don’t Miss Another Hour with the Chefs, and Other Highlights — The SSP Annual Meeting in San Francisco

Once again, the Chefs from the Scholarly Kitchen will be closing out the SSP Annual Meeting. Held this year in San Francisco from June 5-7, this year’s session marks a return for the Chefs to the venue where many of them met for the first time, donning chefs jackets and hats for a lively give-and-take in front of a large audience.

In addition to the star power of the Chefs, there are other reasons to attend the SSP Annual Meeting:

  • Tim O’Reilly will deliver the keynote
  • Buzzworthy sessions on responsive design, open access publishing, rights and permissions, data analysis, digital textbooks, and more
  • Great networking in the exhibit hall and during meals and breaks
  • Great exhibitors showing all their latest approaches to solving today’s publishing challenges

But back to the real draw of the meeting — the Scholarly Kitchen Chefs!

This year, we hope you can join us as most of the Chefs will be in attendance, and we will address a number of specific topics, in addition to your spontaneous questions. Topics we’re considering covering include:

  • Mandates and policy changes
  • PubMed Central and eLife
  • MOOCs
  • PubMed Central’s effect on publishers’ traffic
  • The future of CC-BY
  • The new role of the venture capitalist
  • Peer review as a differentiator

We’ll only have an hour, so we’ll have to talk fast, but each year, we’ve been able to generate a robust discussion on important topics, with surprising points of disagreement and debate.

If you haven’t yet registered for the SSP Annual Meeting, please do so today. We hope to see you there!

  1. Looking forward to a great conference–I will be disappointed if there’s not a pyramid of desserts, though.
