The theme of LIVE18 was How good is your metadata? where Crossref staff and invited speakers inspired us with their metadata tales of woe and wonder. It was two full days packed with a mixture of plenary sessions, the results of our members’ newly elected board members, and interactive activities.

LIVE17 in Singapore, November 14-15, 2017

We focused on the theme of Metadata + Relations + Infrastructure = Context. We had our fullest program yet, with the broadest representation yet - researchers, editors, journal and book people, publishing execs, librarians, and funders. We talked a lot about relationships: between metadata; between research outputs; and between the scholarly community.
