The 5th World Conference on Research Integrity will be organized around the interlinked themes of transparency and accountability, building on the premise that the honesty and reliability of research are best served by openly sharing all aspects of research and by taking personal responsibility for it. The conference program will explore the challenges of promoting transparency and accountability and the consequences of the failure to do so, with the overall goal of developing an evidence-based agenda for addressing the various lapses of integrity that seem to have become an endemic problem in research today.
The 5th WCRI will feature of series of keynote speakers and be organized around plenary and concurrent sessions exploring conference themes and related topics. In keeping with past conferences, there will be ample opportunities for interaction between participants, including during all sessions, pre-conference workshops and satellite symposia. There will also be interactive poster sessions and exhibitor space as well as time for informal contact during breaks and the social events.
