When and where is it held?

The 2020 Triangle Scholarly Communication Institute will be held from October 4 to 8, 2020, in downtown Durham, North Carolina.

Between 2014 and 2019 TriangleSCI was held at the Rizzo Center, a conference center affiliated with UNC-Chapel Hill, that featured a retreat-like atmosphere. For 2020 we’ll be moving to the center of Durham, where, in keeping with this year’s theme, TriangleSCI programming will be more integrated into the community. The main venue will be The Rickhouse, a historic tobacco building in Durham’s Central Park neighborhood that was recently renovated to an event space, with a large deck overlooking the historic Durham Athletic Park (setting for the film Bull Durham). SCI 2020 participants will have lodging at The Durham Hotel, in a renovated mid-century modern bank building, a short walk from the Rickhouse on Durham’s central square. Meals will be in nearby restaurants and the soon to be opened Durham Food Hall. Plans are in process to host some parts of the program at the newly renovated Durham Public Library downtown branch and/or other venues in historic downtown Durham. More details will be posted on our Venue and Logistics page as they become available.

More information about the place and schedule and what the program is like can be found in these blog posts from past years:
