OAI6 announcement - 2008-07-23

Make a place in your diaries for the next OAI workshop: OAI6, the 6thWorkshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication, which will be held in Geneva, Switzerland:

Wednesday 17th to Friday 19th June 2009.

The workshop will follow the successful format of previous workshops mixing practical tutorials, presentations from cutting-edge projects and research, discussion groups, posters, and an intense social programme to maximise interaction and communication. It will be possible to register for a part or all of the programme.

The workshop is aimed at those involved in the development of open access (OA) repositories and who can influence the direction of developments either within their institution, their country or at an international level - that includes technical developers of OA bibliographic databases and connected services, research information policy developers at university or library level, funding bodies concerned with access to the results of their research, OA publishers, and influential researchers keen to lead OA developments in their own field.

Previous workshops have built a strong community spirit and the event is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and contact details with the wide range of people connected to the OA movement. The OAI series of workshops is one of the biggest international meetings in this field and takes place roughly every two years.

Further information will be added to this web site, including programme details, a registration form, a call for posters,  accommodation and travel advice. The 2009 workshop will be held at a larger venue belonging to the University of Geneva (UNIGE) whom we welcome as co-organisers of this event. Future announcements may be made directly from the UNIGE organisers. Some slides of the new venue can be seen here.

The committee looks forward to welcoming you to Geneva next year for another successful event.
