Call for posters
13.03.2017 - Colleagues
Apologies for cross-postings
The OAI-10 Workshop on Current Developments in Scholarly Communication is taking place in the University of Geneva, 21-23 June 2017. See https://indico.cern.ch/event/405949/. This is one of the most prestigious events on scholarly communication developments in Europe, and is held only every two years.
The academic programme for papers is now full, but we are here issuing a call for Posters for the Poster session.
You are invited to submit a description in the form of a short abstract if you wish to bring a poster to the workshop giving details of your project. The poster should be of interest to OAI10 participants and directly related to the general themes of the workshop…...
Posters will be displayed in the Uni Mail main hall. A special ‘ minute madness’ session will be held at the start of the extended coffee break on the morning of Thursday 22nd. This gives creators of posters an opportunity to describe their work in 60 seconds to all of the attendees before the poster session where more in-depth conversations can take place.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to vote for the poster which delivers the most impact. Posters should be A0 in size (841 x 1189 mm) for portrait or A1 (594 x 841 mm) for landscape. Any special equipment requests should be addressed to the workshop organisers when a poster has been accepted.
If your poster is accepted you should still register for the workshop as normal and you will be expected to pay your own expenses. Owing to the large demand on accommodation, we advise you to register early - you may cancel your registration later if your submission is not successful.
Poster abstracts can be submitted between 13 March 2017 - 10 April 2017 after a quick Lightweight Accounts registration process (different from the conference registration). Decisions will be made on an ongoing basis (and no later than the end April) and communicated to the submitters replace with new link - (http://indico.cern.ch/event/332370/call-for-abstracts/)
Abstract submission opening day: 13 March 2017
Abstract submission deadline: 10 April 2017
If you wish, your poster can be printed by the University of Geneva print service and delivered at the Uni Mail Campus on Thursday 22nd June. If you are interested, send your work in PDF format to Dimitri.Donze@unige.ch before 10 June 2017. (Please note that posters created with Microsoft PowerPoint should be sent in PDF and PPT formats.) Cost of this service is CHF 23.- for A1 landscape posters and CHF 33.- for A0 portrait ones, to be paid on delivery at the main desk.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts.
OAI10 Workshop in Geneva, 21-23 June 2017
01.03.2017 - Dear colleagues,
The OAI10 CERN-UNIGE Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication is taking place in the University of Geneva and in CERN, Geneva, on 21-23 June 2017. The meeting's web site is https://indico.cern.ch/event/405949/.
There are six plenary sessions:
- Technical Session
- Copyright and Licensing
- OA Transformation – From Subscription to OA
- OA Outside the Academy
- Social Media as a Research Data Source
- The Future of Repositories
The tutorials, which start the Workshop on Wednesday, are devoted to:
- Open Science Café
- Interoperability for Discovery and Navigation: ResourceSync and Signposting
- An IP-law Perspective on Research Data Usability and Interoperability
- ORCID / Identifiers
- Linked Open Data as part of Scholarly Communication
- Open Science New Tools & Models
Instead of breakout groups, an "unconference" will take place on Thursday afternoon. It will allow participants to propose, vote on and run sessions themselves.
There will also be 30+ posters displayed, with a minute-madness session for authors to present them. We will soon issue a call for posters.
The OAI Workshops provide a space for all those interested in developments in scholarly communication to come together to learn from each other, to exchange ideas, and to hear papers from leading experts in the field. They are rather prominent European events in the year in which they are held. Registration is open at http://indico.cern.ch/event/405949/registration/.
The OAI Organisers (see https://indico.cern.ch/event/405949/page/4542-organisation) look forward to meeting you all in Geneva in June.
From the OAI10 Organising Committee with cheers.
