Keynote: Timothy Gowers, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Perverse incentives: how the reward structures of academia impede scholarly communication and good science

Timothy Gowers is currently a Royal Society Research Professor and also holder of the Rouse Ball Chair in Mathematics. In 1998 he was awarded a Fields Medal, and in 2012 he was knighted for services to mathematics. In addition to his research, he has a keen interest in open science, especially as applied to mathematics, organizing a large-scale open online collaboration that quickly led to the solution of a significant open problem. In recent years he has campaigned for the scientific literature to become more open and for the cost of journals to reflect the greatly reduced cost of disseminating information in the internet age. As part of that effort, he was a founding editor of Discrete Analysis, an arXiv overlay journal with running costs that are a tiny fraction of those of a typical traditional journal.
