There are several levels of sponsorship opportunities for the upcoming PUBMET2015: THE 4th SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING IN THE CONTEXT OF OPEN SCIENCE, to be held 21-22 September 2017 in Zagreb, Croatia at Faculty of engineering and computing of the University of Zagreb. PUBMET2017 is organised by the University of Zadar, Department of Information Sciences, in partnership with the University of Zagreb and Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb. By supporting PUBMET2017 conference sponsors will demonstrate their engagement with the research and development in the area of scholarly publishing.
In the focus of the conference is scholarly communication (and Publishing as the most visible channel) and Metrics and assessment. This year’s conference topics will focus on open scholarship, open science and open cultural heritage; scholarly metrics and assessment; scholarly publishing in the 21st century; ethical considerations; business models in scholarly publishing. Both themes (publishing and metrics) will be represented by a combination of invited talks, shorter presentations by registered speakers and a panel discussion conducted by acknowledged experts. The conference will gather researchers, university professors, publishers, editors, librarians/information specialists, policy makers and experts from a vast array of scientific research. Participation in this conference is an opportunity to share and gain new knowledge and to exchange different opinions.
PUBMET2017 offers sponsorship opportunities at five different levels: Platinum (1500€ or more) Gold (1000 € or more), Silver (600€ or more) and Bronze (200€ or more) and Supporter (up to 200€). Other forms of sponsoring are very welcomed as well. The support of Sponsor could take the form of, for example, individual student sponsoring, a lump sum to the student scholarship fund, social events fund, PUBMET2017 awards fund, a gift for one of the awards, conference T-shirt sponsoring, invited speakers expenses (flight and accommodation), lunches, the welcome reception, conference dinner, or items in the welcome pack for delegates (e.g. bag, badges, USB sticks, pad of paper and pen). Any other type of support you would find more appropriate to your promotional strategy would of course be very welcome.
Sponsorship provides a number of benefits. The annual PUBMET2017 conference attracts domestic and international audience of about 100-130 people from universities and research institutions across Croatia and other countries.
There is a clear marketing opportunity for Sponsors’ promotion to all PUBMET2017 attendees. Web links to Sponsor will be put on the conference website, a formal acknowledgement of Sponsor sponsorship will be made in the conference dissemination actions in the media, and in speeches at the conference opening, welcome reception, and conference dinner. Commensurate to the sponsorship level, other sponsoring benefits include a table in the main conference area with an internet connection, slot for a poster during the entire conference, complimentary full-conference registrations, items to be inserted in the individual conference bags given to participants, Sponsor’s logo on the conference website and dissemination material, as well as on the program guide and proceedings. Sponsors can also take part in the conference program, giving academic lectures (covering this year topics), workshops, or just presenting Sponsor products.
