Dear colleagues,****

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.****
