#FuturePub 6 – Scientific Collaboration: how far have we come and how far do we have to go?


Join Overleaf for an evening exploring exciting new ideas and technologies in science & publishing! This is their first FuturePub event in the US – coming from London where it has “already become such a staple of the London science tech/publishing scene”.

So for everyone new to the event, here’s how it works:

  1. Six quick-fire talks cover a range of new and exciting developments in science & publishing tech
  2. These all fit into a one hour slot (from 7-8pm), to keep the evening fast paced and fun!
  3. The rest of the evening is then open for discussions and conversations over drinks – we expect a great mixture of attendees from the research, publishing and start-up communities.
  4. After the event, groups usually continue their discussions at a nearby pub – this time it’s even easier as Overleaf are running the whole evening – presentations, drinks, nibbles, music and all – at the Davenport Building Atrium in Cambridge!

Overleaf have secured a great line up of speakers! Presentation titles and details are coming soon!
