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, registration and the call for posters are now available at https://indico.cern.ch/event/oai8. It will be possible to register for a part or all of the programme.
You are invited to submit a description in the form of a short abstract if you wish to bring a poster to the workshop giving details of your project. The poster should be of interest to OAI8 participants and directly related to the general themes of the workshop.
Posters will be displayed in the Uni Mail main hall and an extended coffee break will take place on Thursday 20 June 2013. This will give attendees the chance to view these and discuss them with the author. Attendees will also have the opportunity to vote for the poster which delivers the most impact. Posters should be A0 in size (841 x 1189 mm) for portrait or A1 (594 x 841 mm) for landscape. Any special equipment requests should be addressed to the workshop organisers when a poster has been accepted.
If your poster is accepted you should still register for the workshop as normal and you will be expected to pay your own expenses. Owing to the large demand on accommodation, we advise you to register early – you may cancel your registration later if your submission is not successful.
Poster abstracts can be submitted between 19 February 2013 – 1 April 2013 after a quick registration process (different from the conference registration). Decisions will be made on an ongoing basis (and no later than the end April) and communicated to the submitters.
