Berlin 5 Open Access: From Practice to Impact: Consequences on Knowledge 
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:
