COAR is pleased to announce that the COAR Annual Meeting 2023 will take place in Costa Rica on May 16-18, 2023. The meeting will be hosted by Consejo Nacional de Rectores (CONARE) and is being jointly organized by CONARE, COAR, and LA Referencia.

The theme of the meeting is Sustainability and Innovation in Scholarly Communications. This location is the perfect backdrop for such a meeting as Costa Rica is a leader in environmental sustainability, with 99 percent of its energy from renewable sources. Moreover, Latin America has been a beacon for both sustainability and innovation in our field, with a long history of publicly-funded publishing infrastructure and collective approaches to scholarly communications.

The meeting will be a hybrid meeting and registration will be open in February 2023
Keynote speaker: Marin Dacos, National Open Science Coordinator at the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
