To request a COPE speaker, note that we can only accept those engagements that meet certain criteria and where our expenses will be paid. Please ensure that you answer the following questions in your message to us:

  1. Are all expenses paid for (travel, and hotel if appropriate)?
  2. Are there any facilities for the COPE speaker to attend by video conferencing if attendance in person was not possible?
  3. Who is the audience (editors/authors/institutions/etc)?
  4. Where and when is the meeting taking place?
  5. What is the topic?

Requests will be considered by the Outreach and Events subcommittee.
