The Wiley Executive Seminar is an annual event held in Washington DC for learned societies and association staff.

This year, we’re imagining the future of research communications. How will research be funded? What technologies will we use? Who are the researchers of tomorrow and what do we need to do to create a thriving, inclusive research community?

Let’s imagine the future together, and what we should do now to be ready for it.
