"An open future seems closer than ever before, but no crystal ball can tell us what the next few years will really look like. What can scholarly publishers do to prepare for the future when the ground seems to be constantly shifting under them?

Our panel discussion will be followed by moderated roundtables, so come prepared to share your own ideas with the community!..."
