OAI Workshops are prominent European OA events in the year in which they are held. Places are still available and registration is open at http://indico.cern.ch/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py/display?confId=211600. The OAI Workshops provide a space for all those interested in developments in Scholarly Communication to come together to learn from each other, to exchange ideas, and to hear papers from leading experts in the field.
The OAI Organising Committee (see http://indico.cern.ch/internalPage.py?pageId=7&confId=211600) looks forward to meeting you all in Geneva in June.
