Event Details

In the year of Digital Futures at SLQ, world-renowned British mathematician and open access campaigner Sir Timothy Gowers is coming to SLQ.

Sir Timothy Gowers is professor of mathematics at the University of Cambridge, Fellow of the Royal Society (UK), and recipient of the Fields Medal, Sylvester Medal of the Royal Society of London and the De Morgan Medal of the University of Cambridge.

Sir Timothy also campaigns against publishing houses (specifically Elsevier) monopolising access to academic journals and restricting the free exchange of information. The boycott, known as The Cost of Knowledge, was initiated by Sir Timothy in 2012 with the support of thousands of academics around the world.

Sir Timothy will be discussing the role libraries play in access to knowledge, the Open Access agenda and the commercialisation of information in the age of digital citizenship.
