PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2011

Are you an educator? professor? teacher? do you want to understand what’s going on in the academic open access publishing world? This conference is for you.

Freie Universität Berlin: September 26, 2011 – September 28, 2011

According to their site:

The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce that, in partnership with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Third International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference will be held from September 26 – 28, 2011 in Berlin, Germany.

This is the first time that the PKP Conference is being held outside of Vancouver, Canada, and we look forward to meeting more members of the international scholarly publishing community. Given that the landmark Budapest Open Access Initiative, launched in December 2001, will be celebrating its first decade, the conference invites explorations of the lessons to learn, successes achieved, setbacks overcome, and lessons to learn in our shared attempts to support alternative publishing solutions and to increase open access within scholarly publishing. The first and second PKP conferences brought together a remarkable array of presentations and participants from around the world, and we anticipate an equally valuable experience in 2011.
