Details of speakers have been finalised for the next ALPSP seminar in London: Standing on the Digits of Giants: Research data, preservation and innovation.

The full-day event, produced in association with the Digital Preservation Coalition, will examine emerging trends and focus on access being an ongoing process rather than a one time event.

Speakers will include: Josh Brown, ORCiD regional director, who will talk about 'Recognition Across the Entire Lifecycle: Identifying contributions to research'; and Robert Gurney OBE, professor of earth observation science at the University of Reading, who will talk about 'Science of the (near) Future: Its power and requirements'.

This seminar will help clarify the various moving parts that make up the digital research record, which will enable delegates to develop relevant policies and support for authors, editors and clients. The day will also aim to increase knowledge and access to networks that will support scenario-planning and product development going forward.

It is recommended for publishers, research managers, specialists in digital preservation, repository managers, research funders and policy makers, learned society representatives and research librarians.
