SpotOn London is an annual conference for anyone interested in how science is communicated and carried out online, hosted by Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, Digital Science and the Wellcome Trust. The two days are a dynamic, lively melting pot of scientists, science communicators, technologists, and those interested in science policy.
This year’s theme will be on the challenges of balancing the public and the private in the digital age. Friday will see panels, workshops and keynotes on topics including: sharing sensitive data, measuring social impact, open peer review and the right to be forgotten.
In an exciting change to our Saturday programme, SpotOn London will be hosting an “unconference” completely picked and run by the community within this year’s theme
