Logo for FORCE11: The Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship.Jon Udell and Maryann Martone from Hypothesis are leading two intensive courses on annotation in scholarly communication this summer at the FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Summer Institute (FSCI), a week-long training program at the University of California, San Diego, 31 July–4 August, 2017.

Open Annotation Tools and Techniques is a hands-on workshop designed to engage participants deeply in open digital annotation. 21st Century Scholarly Communication will consider annotation as a connecting layer across the wider ecosystem of current scholarly practice.

FSCI offers courses taught by leading experts covering trends and practices that are transforming science and scholarship, including innovations in standards, technologies, research flows, and forms of publication. The full program incorporates intensive coursework, seminar participation, group activities, lectures, and hands-on training.

Early registration for FSCI ends on 8 July 2017! We hope you join us there!
