  OAI8, the 8th Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication will
  be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from Wednesday 19th to Friday 21st
  June 2013. Program details and registration are now available at
  https://indico.cern.ch/event/oai8. It will be possible to register
  for a part or all of the programme.

  The workshop will follow the successful format of previous sessions
  mixing practical tutorials, presentations from cutting-edge projects
  and research, discussion groups, posters, and an intense social
  programme to maximise interaction and communication. Previous
  workshops have built a strong community spirit. The event is a unique
  opportunity to exchange ideas and contact details with a large public
  connected to the OA movement. The OAI workshops are a series of the
  most important international meetings in this field and take place
  roughly every two years.
  
  Each iteration of the workshop series has dealt with issues relevant
  to today. This year, research data will be one of the topics
  tackled. In the light of the Royal Society Report "Science as an Open
  Enterprise", European universities are beginning themselves to
  consider the impact of the data deluge. The workshop will also revisit
  the topic of metrics and suggest new approaches.
  
  Thanks to the continued support of our sponsors, the organisers have
  been able to maintain the modest registration fee at the same level as
  for the previous workshop, i.e. CHF 275. Moreover, a special early
  bird fee of CHF 230 is offered until Wednesday 27th of March.
  
  Further information will be added to the website
  https://indico.cern.ch/event/oai8, including details of the Breakout
  Groups, of a pre-conference day about Duraspace, and the Call for
  posters.
  
  The committee looks forward to welcoming you to Geneva.
  
  For the OAI8 Organising Committee with cheers,
