18th EASE Conference Programme

Our Programme will follow a familiar format, with a keynote presentation followed by a number of sessions with talks, panel discussions and debates with expert speakers from across the globe, a poster exhibition and competition, sponsors booths, and of course some leisure time and chance to network at our welcome reception and Conference Dinner. We are planning to hold some educational workshops and satellite events before and after the Conference, so stay tuned for further updates.


‘Editing in the age of misinformation’

Our Conference theme will be ‘Editing in the age of misinformation’. We welcome proposals for sessions, speakers, panel discussions, workshops and lightning talks that address any aspect of this theme.

Our Programme will encompass perennial issues around trust and reliability in research within academia and across the public sphere, and addresses contemporary developments in the application of artificial intelligence, large language models, machine learning, and image generation relating to scholarly publishing.

The Conference will highlight the benefits and drawbacks of these tools, considering the constructive and progressive ways in which technology supports all editorial roles, as well as the emerging challenges that it presents.

Sessions may include topics such as (but not limited to):

  • editorial management processes;
  • the role of the science editor;
  • creating robust publication ethics policies;
  • responsible and appropriate use of AI tools;
  • the author experience and author services;
  • identification of misconduct in data sets, images, peer review, paper mills
  • public confidence and perceptions of research and science
  • revolutionising the peer review process
  • dealing with predatory journals
  • journal development, marketing and promotion.
