EASE Virtual Conference 2020 session recordings available
The EASE Virtual Conference is all wrapped up, and what a fantastic inaugural event it was! A landmark in EASE activities. I, and the whole organising committee are very grateful to all our speakers for making it such an engaging, insightful and enjoyable event. Special thanks to Mary Hodgson for overseeing, organising and coordinating this event in such an expert way, and thanks to Bahar Mehmani for proposing the framework for this event in the wake of us having to postpone our in-person Valencia conference to 2021. For the Virtual Conference on the 12th June, we have had around 140 people all day, in each of the four plenary sessions. All eight of the breakout groups were well attended, generating a lot of great discussion and insights which will be shared in due course through our blog, and Digest. Prior to the main Conference, on the 11th, we held meetings for our Regional Chapters, in Bulgaria, Mexico, Turkey and Russia which involved hundreds of editors, researchers and publishing professionals – over 100 at the Russian event, and nearly 300 in the Turkish event, making these two combined days the biggest EASE Event in our history. We are pleased to announce the conference recordings of the four main sessions have been uploaded to our (brand new) YouTube channel and are also available on the conference page of the EASE website.
This is a great chance to see our main sessions if you were unable to attend, or for those that did, to listen again and catch up on something you missed. These recordings are now publicly available so please encourage your colleagues to take a look and see what they missed. Check out the four videos in the conference playlist here, and head over to the channel to subscribe for some imminent overview videos introducing key EASE activities and progress updates! I also have some very exciting EASE-related news to come, so keep an eye on the blog and Twitter, because I will be posting about it very soon!
