Conference: OAI7. June 22-24

OAI7, the 7th Cern Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication, at http://indico.cern.ch/conferenceDisplay.py?ovw=True&confId=103325is being held on 22-24 June 2011 in the University of Geneva. OAI Workshops are *THE* Open Access event in Europe in the year in which they are held. They bring together a community of librarians, IT specialists, publishers, funders and researchers and are a real community occasion. A full programme of papers and posters has been prepared by the Organising Committee for this event. A new development
for OAI7 is the introduction of a session on Open Access publishing, the first time this subject has received such treatment at OAI Workshops. The full programme of Tutorials and Papers can be found at http://indico.cern.ch/conferenceTimeTable.py?confId=103325#20110622.

Registrations are proceeding apace. We encourage you to register quickly at http://indico.cern.ch/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py?confId=103325 to ensure you have a place at the event. There is a Social Programme to accompany OAI7, which will include a visit to the Cern Laboratories, with the opportunity to tour some of the exhibitions there, as well as a buffet and the now-traditional drinks sharing, where every attender is invited to bring something to drink and share which represents their home country. A second social occasion will be the drinks aperitif on the rooftop of the University buildings, giving panoramic views across the city.
