We’re pleased to announce a Call for Speakers for the OpenAthens Conference in London, March 2019.

The OpenAthens Conference attracts over 120 international publishers and library professionals from a wide range of sectors including: education and research, healthcare, government, charity, publishing and commercial. Anyone with an interest in identity and access management is welcome to attend.

We want our international conference audience to feel inspired and enthused about the sessions they participated in during the day and to benefit from the valuable connections they make through networking.

Your proposal can cover one of these suggested themes:

  • Federated Access Management
  • User consent / privacy
  • Piracy
  • Practical use of identity and access management
  • Systems integration with OpenAthens
  • UX / user journey / RA21

And there’s a range of session types to choose from:

  • Plenary: 20 minute presentation and 10 minute Q&A.
  • Case studies: 10 minute presentation and 5 minute Q&A.
  • Lightning talks: multiple 5 minute talks on the same topic area in 30 minutes.
  • Birds of a feather: 30 minute informal discussion on a single topic.
  • Panel debate: 5 minute pitch per panel speaker, 40 minute Q&A debate.

Please note: Conference sessions are intended for librarians and publishers to discuss topics and issues of interest. They’re not an opportunity for marketing products or services.

Notification of acceptance will be the end of August 2018.
