See The Future - Conference 2021

Research publication never slowed down while the Earth stood still as COVID crisscrossed international borders in multiple waves. The numbers of submissions and publications continuously grew while most productions of modern societies dwindled. At the same time, the long-foretold paradigm shift has happened before our eyes. Modes of publication and research collaboration have undergone rapid fundamental changes. In these uncertain times, change and greater openness remain the only constant. See the Future 2021 Virtual Conference will focus on these vital aspects of research publication and once again challenge our preconceptions. - Listen to Nobel Laureate Professor Randy Schekman who will speak from personal experience about the importance of collaboration and openness in basic science and research publication. - Learn about international research collaboration in the post-COVID era by Richard de Grijs, Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Macquarie University. - Know more about the future perspectives of research and publication from Professor Seeram Ramakrishna, a highly cited researcher (HCR), who is currently serving as Director, Center for Nanotechnology & Sustainability, National University of Singapore. - Aimee Nixon and Damaris Critchlow from MDPI will address how review and editorial processes are upheld in Open Access publication. - Attend an informative session by Peter Harrison, Senior Vice President, Physical Sciences Journals, Elsevier, and hear him speak about the evolving role of a publisher in supporting the research and publication cycle. - Sarah Greaves, STM Publishing Consultant & Former Publisher - Nature, will talk about technical innovation and the brave new world of research publication today. - Professor Jerry Wind, Director of the Wharton Fellows Program, University of Pennsylvania, will discuss the urgency for interdisciplinary studies. - Warwick Dawson, Yuan Wang and Sara Hagh from The University of New South Wales will open up career paths outside the ivory tower for you and share how they transitioned into research management. - Professor Roger Watson (Professor of Nursing, University of Hull and Editor-in-Chief of Nurse Education in Practice, Elsevier) will give you his personal four rules of writing for publication.
