FORCE11 is holding its annual conference virtually this year, focusing on the future of scholarly communication. There is no fee (donations requested) but registration is required. For more information see

This meeting is normally highly international and it starts very early in North American timezones. I do not know if the sessions are being recorded, or what arrangements will be made to provide access to them.
