Welcome and Opening: "Redefining the Scientific Record"
Dr. Elisabeth Niggemann, Director General, Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Leipzig und Frankfurt am Main
 
Keynote 1
Sander Dekker, State Secretary, Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, The Hague, The Netherlands
 
Keynote 2: Can Creators and Curators Redefine the Scientific Record?
Professor Dr. David Black, Secretary General of ICSU (International Council for Science), Paris, and Chair of Organic Chemistry, University of New South Wales, Sydney
There has alway been a crucial linkage between creators and curators of scientific knowledge. The creators need the curators so that they can establish their reputations, and the curators need the steady generation of new scientific knowledge. The advent of the Internet has changed the balance of the relationship between creators and curators, but the interdependency remains. There is also a greater call for open access to publication, and this brings a need for more appropriate controls. The talk will deal with aspects of the relationship from the point of view of a researcher, and also describe steps being taken by the International Council for Science to deal with aspects of open access, and the use of metrics for the assessment of quality.
 
Keynote 3
The Future of Academic Publishing: The Chemists' Point of View
Professor Dr. Wolfram Koch,Executive Director, German Chemical Society (GDCh), Frankfurt am Main
The academic publishing landscape is rapidly changing. Among the buzz words are open access, big data, and quality control. The Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker has very recently published a position paper "On the Future of Scientific Publishing" focusing in particular on open access. The main points of this position paper will be presented. In addition, some of the aspects which make chemistry special in scientific publishing will be addressed. Among these are the dominant role of Learned Societies as publishers, the importance of intellectual property rights and of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, the special requirements of chemistry due to the importance of structural information, and finally the widespread conservatism among chemists when it comes to changes of the existing system.
 
Buffet Lunch
 
Keynote 4:
CHORUS: A Solution for Public Access
Dr. H. Frederick Dylla, Executive Director and CEO, American Institute of Physics, College Park, MD
 
Session: Big Data: Researchers' Perspectives on Hype, Challenges, Opportunities and Imperatives
Chair: Jon Treadway, Senior Analyst, Science & Scholarly,Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, London
 
"Big data" has become a buzz phrase in fields from policy-making to advertising. Sharing, creation and analysis of data has the potential to transform the scientific record and further research, but grappling with "big data" is complex and challenging.
 
Invited Speakers:
 
Big Data and International Scientific Collaboration: Challenges and Opportunities
Dr. Simon Hodson, Executive Director CODATA (ICSU Committee on Data for Science and Technology), Paris (accepted provisionally)
 
Publishing Large BioImage Datasets with Bio-Formats and OMERO: A Report from the Real World
Dr. Jason Swedlow, Professor of Quantitative Cell Biology, University of Dundee and President, Glencoe Software (confirmed)
 
Science Funding and Science Policy: Big Data as a Tool for Supporting the Research Funding Process
Christian Herzog, ÜberResearch GmbH, Köln
 
Coffee & Tea and Networking
 
Session: All about Metrics
Chair: Mayur Amin, Senior Vice President of Research, Elsevier, Oxford
 
Altmetrics - building a broader Picture of Impact
Dr. Paul Groth, Assistant Professor, Knowledge Representation & Reasoning Group, Department of Computer Science & the Network Institute, Free University of Amsterdam
 
Altmetrics - from Hype to Opportunity (Mike Taylor goes beyond the noise to present seven distinct uses for Altmetrics)
Mike Taylor, Technology Research Specialist, Elsevier Labs, Oxford

Talking to the Elephant in the Room - Changes in the Academic Publishing Process
Are you interested in the future of publishing? New developments in analytics, peer review and the fragmentation of publishing? We will be live broadcasting the Academic Publishing in Europe conference in Berlin via 3 Hangouts on Air and we will keep the Q&A window open. Links below. 
This year's Academic Publishing in Europe Pre-Conference will be live broadcasted via a Hangout on Air on Monday, 27 January, 2014. Please sign up via the links below to the Event pages of the 3 sessions

Talking to the Elephant in the Room II
Changes in the Academic Publishing Process
Organized by +Bas Straub, +Martijn Roelandse, Andreas Thoß, Felix Evert and +Michael Dreusicke - http://www.ape2014.eu/html/program_pre.html
 
Over the past years we have seen some changes within the academic publishing process. Changes that have caused some worry amongst the traditional publishers; are our business models under threat? On the other hand the worry hasn't been too great. Publishers have been feeling reasonably secure with their business models, built around a whole package of services. But we now see more and more initiatives that are changing the publishing process. Initiatives like portable peer-review, alternatives to publication hosting, start-ups like ResearchGate, ScienceOpen as well as enhanced author service providers are all trying to enter the market. We do not know yet what they will bring and whether they will survive or being sold like Mendeley in early 2013. The market decides.

The APE 2014 Pre-Conference Day has selected a few of these initiatives to present themselves including just as last year, lots of discussion. This Pre-Conference Day starts with some helicopter views.
