Hi Ale,

I will be attending in Berlin and I am interested to be with you on the
exploding open science topic.

Same as Shannon I also would welcome a side event involving the other open
science proposals that didn't make it to the main OKFest programme.
I could contribute to  the DOAJ topic and the proposals I submitted myself
(Geomicrobiology as an example for open science for development, and
scientific quality criteria.)
Apart from this, I have heard rumors on a possible satellite event on  open
science for development but couldn't find anything specific checking
through my mail messages.Anyone who knows more on this?
