27 September 2006: The 5th Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication will be held at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland:

From Wednesday 18th to Friday 20th April 2007.

The OAI series of workshops is one of the biggest international meetings of technical repository-developers, library Open Access policy formulators, and the funders and researchers that they serve. The programme contains a mix of practical tutorials given by experts in the field, presentations from cutting-edge projects and research, posters from the community, breakout discussion groups, and an intense social programme which has helped to build a strong network amongst previous participants. The event is almost unique in bringing together these scholarly communication communities and is proud to continue this tradition with the OAI5 workshop in 2007.

Note for regular participants: the workshop will now fall Wednesday to Friday and NOT Thursday to Saturday as previously.

Further information will be added to this web site in November, including further programme details, a registration form, and a call for contributions.

The workshop takes place roughly every second year in alternation with its sister Open Scholarship Conference and the Nordic Conference on Scholarly Communication.
