Web Meeting on Open Search
An Open Internet Search community, involving science, computing centres, libraries, politics, legal and ethics experts and society is currently forming in Europe. The Open Search Symposium (OSSYM) series provides a forum to discuss and jointly advance the ideas and concepts of Open Internet search in Europe. Since the OSSYM 2020 had to be postponed to October 12-14 2020, we are inviting all interested parties to a web meeting on 26 May 2020, hosted and facilitated by CERN to jointly work and prepare towards OSSYM 2020. The web meeting will allow interested parties to come together for a couple of hours to listen to interesting keynotes and perspectives on Open Internet Search and to jointly discuss and prepare ideas for the Open Search Symposium to be hosted at CERN in October.
