Overleaf is a cloud-based collaborative writing and reviewing tool developed by the team behind the popular WriteLaTeX editor. Overleaf is making science and research faster and more efficient by whole scientific process into one place, from idea to writing, to review, to publication. Overleaf’s rapidly growing service is already serving more than 200,000 authors worldwide, and is now supporting universities, libraries and research centers with Overleaf for Institutions.

John Hammersley will chronicle the creation and development of this award winning technology and its use within various institutional settings.

Helen Josephine will then discuss the Stanford-Overleaf institutional trial – why Stanford chose Overleaf, what the trial involves, and the response received from the staff and students who’ve been using Overleaf in 2015. Real world examples of how Overleaf has been used and embraced by researchers and institutions will be given. A Q&A session will allow the audience to join the discussion on how they're embracing collaborative and researcher technologies.
