The CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI9)
University of Geneva June 17th-19th 2015
This series of Workshops in Geneva has become the major community
event in Europe in the year in which it is held. For these three
days, librarians, IT professionals, publishers and researchers come
together to network, hear presentations from keynote speakers,
attend tutorials on cutting-edge themes, and congtribute their ideas
through breakout/technical sessions and poster displays. The
workshop is designed to provide a focus for the interchange of
ideas, the building of new partnerships, the annoucement of new
developments and the celebration of success in innovation in the
whole scholarly communications process.
The workshop will be held in the University of Geneva at the
Institute of Graduate Studies and Campus Biotech. Both locations are
close to each other and easily accessible on the Geneva tram
network. The Programme Committee is currently drawing up an
innovative programme for the meeting. Please reserve the dates for
OAI9 in your diaries now. Keep an eye on the Workshop website at
http://indico.cern.ch/e/oai9, which also lists the Twitter feed and
hashtag for the meeting.
On behalf of the OAI9 Programme Committee, I look forward to seeing
you in the University of Geneva to hear news of current developments
in scholarly communication.
