[InetBib] Third International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference

The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce that, in partnership 
with the Freie Universität Berlin and Simon Fraser University Library, 
the Third International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference will be held 
from September 26 - 28, 2011 in Berlin, Germany.As someone who has 
supported, or participated in, previous PKP initiatives or might be 
interested in future endeavors, we would like to extend a personal 
invitation to you to consider attending this event, or submitting a 
presentation proposal.

This is the first time that the PKP Conference is being held outside of 
Vancouver, Canada and is a timely way to acknowledge the growing, 
international PKP user community.We are expecting a strong turnout of 
between 350-400 opinion makers and leaders from around the world in the 
utilization of open source software, adoption of alternate publishing 
models, and the advancement of the open access movement. Given that the 
landmark Budapest Open Access Initiative, launched in December 2001, 
will be celebrating its first decade, the conference is inviting 
explorations of the lessons learned, successes achieved, and setbacks 
overcome in our shared attempts to increase and open access within 
scholarly publishing.

More information, including the Call for Participation and Registration 
form, is available on the conference website:
