  "abstract": "<p>The scientific community today operates on a paradigm of scientific communication that dates back to the early 17th century.&nbsp;The Web was first and foremost created with the intention to improve cooperation among scientist and to enable coordination of a complex scientific projects. Unfortunately it was then rapidly co-opted by publishing companies and for-profit business models instead of ensuring it to remain an open resource for scientists and society at large.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Both the hierarchical, outdated&nbsp;nature of how we operate to this date in academic institutions and the demands for metrics to measure research output by public funders that mostly are&nbsp; generated by publishers&nbsp;leads to a vicious circle that is hard to escape.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>The presentation highlights the historical roots of this problem and&nbsp;how open access movements begun to overcome it.</p>\n\n<p>The distributed Web is poised to enable large scale coordination and cooperation among scientist and citizens, reaching beyond nations and even continents to tackle the world most pressing challenges.&nbsp;The talk&nbsp;thus proposes how we may integrate next generation web technologies that enable self sovereign publishing.</p>",
