NFAIS Plans Blockchain for Scholarly Publishing Conference

The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) is hosting Blockchain for Scholarly Publishing, a conference on how blockchain could affect researcher workflows, including data collection, peer review, and access to published works. Attendees will explore blockchain’s application, review case studies, and debate its challenges and opportunities for scholarly communication.

Christopher E. Wilmer (co-author of Bitcoin for the Befuddled) will give the opening keynote speech, “Scholars Keep Records: Blockchains as a Natural Step Towards Better Record Keeping.”

The conference will be held May 15–16, 2018, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Alexandria Old Town in Alexandria, Va. Early-bird registration is now open.
