UKSG Forum

ACCUCOMS staff attending: TBC

ACCUCOMS is attending this year’s UKSG Forum happening in London, UK. The exact date and location will be confirmed soon. 

About UKSG Forum
The UKSG Forum was conceived in November 2013 in response to requests from members. It is now established as a major event in the scholarly communications calendar supporting UKSG’s mission “to connect the knowledge community and encourage the exchange of ideas on scholarly communication”. 

The UKSG Forum is one of the key benefits of being a UKSG member and attendance is therefore free to anyone working for a UKSG member organisation. In line with its charitable status, UKSG also wishes to encourage attendance by members of the wider community and therefore subsidises the event so that a nominal charge applies to non-members. A number of student bursaries are also offered each year.

What to expect at the UKSG Forum?

  • short sessions on best practice and interesting projects
  • a comprehensive exhibition
  • ample, good-quality networking opportunities

The Forum is the place for ideas, debate, provocations and short briefings. The programme consists of short lightning talks that provide “food for thought”, appealing to a broad range of interests and levels.
