*Connecting Research Results, Bridging Communities, Opening Scholarship*

SPARC and COAR are delighted to announce their upcoming joint
conference, Connecting
Research Results, Bridging Communities, Opening Scholarship on April 15th
and 16th in Porto, Portugal. Registration is now open!

Co-hosted by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition
(SPARC) and the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR), the
meeting will offer a thought-provoking program with dynamic speakers from
around the world to discuss the opportunities and challenges for libraries
in a world of open science and open content, provide a valuable opportunity
for participants to make connections, and learn best practices from
colleagues around the world.

The conference is deliberately structured to deliver both an overview of
the most important policy and philosophical developments as well as
pragmatic sessions to help participants become more effective in their
roles on a day-to-day basis. Featured keynote speakers include:


   - John Wilbanks, Chief Commons Officer, Sage Bionetworks

-----------
In a rapidly evolving world, academic and research institutions must think
about becoming agents of change, with greater flexibility and
responsiveness than ever before. Part of this change is a shift away from
the notion that researchers simply conduct research and produce
publications, but rather the research community itself must begin to take
on responsibility for ensuring research outputs are widely and openly
disseminated, properly curated, and preserved. In this sense, the
institution becomes one node in a larger, interconnected network of content
producers and stewards.

There are both challenges and opportunities inherent in this new
environment. For instance, how do we create a seamless global research
network in which all countries and researchers can participate? How can we
evaluate research outputs based on their quality, and not on whether they
are attached to a prestige publication? How can we manage increasingly
large and complex data to support new modes of science and innovation? And
how can we ensure that content is appropriately licensed, annotated and
preserved to allow it to be re-used and integrated with other related
content? Clearly, libraries and institutions must forge new partnerships,
nurture new skills and competencies, and develop new organizational
structures.

This conference, co-hosted by SPARC and COAR, will address some of the
important challenges facing our libraries as we attempt to re-define our
roles in an age of constant flux.
