OAI7, the 7th Cern Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication,
at http://indico.cern.ch/conferenceDisplay.py?ovw=True&confId=103325,
is 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

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.

We look forward to meeting you in Geneva in June.
