Open Distance and e-Learning Conference

An exciting new virtual conference on “Open distance and e-learning” (ODeL) will take place August 3-5, 2022 and the final call for papers is still open. ‘All Things Research in Open Distance and eLearning’ is the theme of the conference this year. Papers are invited from both established and emerging academics, researchers, and scholars, and the Call for Papers is still open through July 15th.

The conference seeks to promote discussion on open distance and e-learning (ODeL) research in the age of the internet’s widespread connectivity.

Open Science innovation for the upcoming ODeL Conference

On September 12th, ScienceOpen and HTWK Leipzig will be organizing the Road to Open Meta conference, which will aim to define the existing challenges of metadata communication and provide a forum to discuss and present solutions on how to overcome possible problem areas.

Various stakeholders of the Open Science and Open Access communities will round up the event by investigating questions on what makes systemic metadata communication difficult and how to overcome those metadata communication challenges for better distribution and discoverability results.

A special focus will be to examine how OA has also changed the way we use metadata in the context of research evaluation. To learn more about the conference and to register, please visit the event page here.


REPO4EU is a Horizon Europe project that aims to create a connected European Platform for Drug Repurposing that will integrate the scientific, methodological, financial, legal, regulatory, and IP dimensions of drug repurposing, as well as enable and facilitate seamless access to, pooling, and sharing of high-quality data assets in the field. The 1st International Conference on Drug Repurposing will kick off this project, and it will surely be an event not to be missed.

RExPO22, the first in the RExPO yearly conference series, will be held in Maastricht, the Netherlands, from September 2nd to 3rd, 2022.

In our unique collection infrastructure, ScienceOpen allows open access to publishing for conference papers. This gives conferences an online presence and increases dissemination and awareness of conference proceedings through integration into ScienceOpen’s discovery environment.
