This will be the latest installment in this highly successful series that began in 2001. The workshop is a forum that is more for activists rather than theorists or administrators. It brings together people who are at the forefront of scholarly communication change.
The workshop is intended as a forum for technological issues associated with scholarly communication and will take place every second year in alternation with the Nordic Conference on Scholarly Communication .
The web cast videos are not yet split but will become available at the end of each break in the agenda (eg coffee break, lunch break). See the first presentation after each break for the web cast video link for the following session.
