Berlin 5 Open Access: From Practice to Impact: Consequences 
on Knowledge Dissemination Padova, Italy, September 19-21, 2007

The University of Padova, the CRUI (Council of Rectors of Italian
Universities) and the Max Planck Gesellschaft are pleased to 
announce that the fifth conference in the "Berlin 
Declaration" tradition will take place in September 19-21, 
2007 in Padova, Italy, with the title "Berlin 5 Open Access: 
From Practice to Impact: Consequences on Knowledge Dissemination".

The aim of the conference will be to bring together the 
various initiatives and key players within the Open Access 
movement in order to:
- maintain the enthusiasm of all people involved in the Open 
Access field,
- have an overview of the developing tools that sustain Open 
Access in scientific data and cultural heritage dissemination,
- develop the effective strategies that can contribute to the 
construction and implementation of this new paradigm of the 
scholarly communication world.

The general subjects of the conference will focus on:
a) state-of-the-art of the sharing of the Berlin Declaration vision: 
survey on the impact of the new paradigm in the institutions 
that signed the declaration; supporting bodies policies and 
activities in favour of innovative scholarly communication processes;
b) the Open Access scene in the developing countries and emerging
economies: strategies, achievements, impact;
c) Open Access and the e-science: how to support the free 
circulation of scientific raw data to facilitate cooperation 
and effective reuse;
d) e-publishing: the emerging of new strategies in scientific 
data dissemination; estimate of the impact in OA journals: 
new tools for scholarly evaluation in the growing layer of 
Open Access publications; the perspective of a changing 
landscape in the scientific journals policies; progress 
reports on the transition from reader-pays to author-pays models;
e) ICT developments and collaborations that support 
e-publishing and Open Access.

The event will take place in Padova, one of the main cultural 
and economic hubs in the Northeast of Italy. In its superb 
medieval centre, Padova hosts a well renowned collection of 
Giotto's frescoes. 
September is a very mild month in Italy, when summer slowly 
yields to autumn in vivid colours.

The conference will be hosted by the University of Padova, 
among the oldest academic institutions in the world and the 
home of the famous scientist Galileo Galilei. The University 
of Padova wishes that this circumstance will bring good 
auspices for the future of scholarly communication and looks 
forward to welcoming you in Italy in 2007.

Further details about the conference will appear soon on the website:
