[BOAI] PKP 2013 - Call for proposals - DEADLINE EXTENSION until May 6
From: Karen Meijer-Kline <kmeijerk AT sfu.ca>
PKP 2013 - Call for proposals - Deadline extension until May 6 By popular demand, we have now extended the deadline for proposals to May 6th! The deadline for submission of proposals to the PKP Scholarly Publishing 2013 ↵ conference , taking place August 19-21 in Mexico City, Mexico, has been ↵ extended to May 6 . Please consider submitting a presentation proposal, ↵ attending the event, and sharing this message with any colleagues who you think ↵ might be interested in participating. The conference will provide a unique opportunity for exchange on innovative ↵ work in scholarly publishing, with a focus on the contributions of open source ↵ technologies. We look forward to hosting editors, publishers, librarians, ↵ researchers, developers, content aggregators, and PKP’s growing user ↵ community from around the world. Participation in the conference will be an ↵ exciting chance to share your knowledge and experience with the larger ↵ scholarly publishing community. Previous International PKP Scholarly Publishing conferences have brought ↵ together a remarkable array of presentations and participants from around the ↵ world. We anticipate an equally valuable experience in 2013. We especially encourage proposals that address one or more of the following ↵ topics: * Reports on institutional, national, and regional open access policies, ↵ initiatives, and projects; * Sustainability and alternative models for open access publishing; * Quality, impact, and reach of Open Access publications; * Open Access and higher education; * Interoperability and information systems; * New reading and publishing technologies. The conference will also include technical workshops, as well as the PKP AGM. A ↵ preliminary program is available on the conference website: ↵ http://pkp.sfu.ca/pkp2013/schedConf/program Proposals should be submitted using the submission guidelines and form ↵ available on our website; all proposals will be subject to peer-review and you ↵ will be informed of a decision by early June. We would also like to note that there is an “early bird” registration ↵ discount available until May 31, 2013 . More information, including the Call for Papers and Registration form, is ↵ available on the conference website: http://pkp.sfu.ca/pkp2013 We very much hope to see you in Mexico! Yours truly, PKP 2013 Conference Organizing Team If you have any questions, please contact the PKP Conference Director, Juan ↵ Pablo Alperin at pkp2013 AT alperin.ca
