    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The scientific community today operates on a paradigm of scientific communication that dates back to the early 17th century.&amp;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.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Both the hierarchical, outdated&amp;nbsp;nature of how we operate to this date in academic institutions and the demands for metrics to measure research output by public funders that mostly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&amp;nbsp; generated by publishers&amp;nbsp;leads to a vicious circle that is hard to escape.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The presentation highlights the historical roots of this problem and&amp;nbsp;how open access movements begun to overcome it.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&amp;nbsp;The talk&amp;nbsp;thus proposes how we may integrate next generation web technologies that enable self sovereign publishing.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
