PKP Conference 2011 in Berlin

 

The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is pleased to announce that, in partnership with the Freie Universitaet Berlin and Simon Fraser University Library, the Third International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference will be held from September 26 - 28, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. This is the first time that the PKP Conference is being held outside of Vancouver, Canada and is a timely way to acknowledge the growing, international PKP user community.  We are expecting a strong turnout of between 350-400 opinion makers and leaders from around the world in the utilization of open source software, adoption of alternate publishing models, and the advancement of the open access movement.

Confirmed speakers so far include Anurag Acharya (Google Scholar), Eelco Ferwerda (Amsterdam University Press), Gustavo E. Fischman (Arizona State University), Melissa Hagemann (Open Society Foundations), Sigi Jottkandt (Open Humanities Press), Ray Siemens (University of Victoria), and John Willinsky (Stanford University and PKP).

Proposals should be submitted by March 31, 2011 (Call for Papers).

A reduced price is available until May 26, 2011 (registration).
