Registration is now open for OAI5 - the 5th Workshop on Innovations in
Scholarly Communication at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, which will take
place from 18th - 20th April 2007.
Please use the conference website to register and, if you wish, to
submit a poster abstract: http://cern.ch/oai5
The OAI series of workshops is one of the biggest international
meetings of technical repository-developers, library Open Access
policy formulators, and the funders and researchers that they
serve. The programme contains a mix of practical tutorials given by
experts in the field, presentations from cutting-edge projects and
research, posters from the community, breakout discussion groups, and
an intense social programme which has helped to build a strong network
amongst previous participants. The event is almost unique in bringing
together these scholarly communication communities and is proud to
continue this tradition with the OAI5 workshop in 2007.
Note for regular participants: the workshop will now fall Wednesday to
Friday and NOT Thursday to Saturday as previously. Also, payment of fees
covering participation, social events and meals (optional) is required
in advance of the workshop - please contact the organising committee in
case of questions or problems.
Further programme details will be announced soon.
We look forward to seeing many of you at CERN in 2007.
Thomas Krichel, on behalf of the OAI5 Committee.
