Cari Colleghi,
alcuni giorni fa Gabriele Mazzitelli mi ha inoltrato l'invito a
partecipare al prossimo Colloquium sull'OA organizzato da BioMed
Central. Gabriele e' impossibilitato ad andarci, qualche altro collega
di Tor Vergata ci sta pensando ma non e' sicuro di poter andare. Forse
qualcuno di voi iscritto alla lista  ha ricevuto l'invito e pensa di
andarci, se cosi' fosse ne siamo lieti e ci auguriamo che poi ci
riassumi in lista l'incontro.
Se invece qualcuno di  voi che lavora in ambito biomedico  non ha
ricevuto l'invito e vorrebbe andarci, Gabriele e' ben lieto di
condividere questo invito. La partecipazione e' gratuita,i posti sono
limitati. Andare a Londra e' oggi grazie alle compagnie low-cost e'
molto economico.
Cordialmente
Paola

Dear Dr. Mazzitelli,

I am writing to invite you to a Colloquium that BioMed Central is 
hosting in London on Thursday 8th February 2007. The one day event, 
'Open Access: How Can We Achieve Quality and Quantity?', is aimed at 
authors, clinicians, funders, librarians, and policy-makers.

Admission is free and lunch will be provided. In order to take advantage 
of this opportunity to hear a wide range of speakers discuss the next 
steps for open access publishing, please complete the registration form 
on the Colloquium website.

The speakers listed below will explore the meaning of "quality AND 
quantity" in open access publishing from a clinical perspective, and 
will investigate how modern developments allow publishers to deliver on 
both sides of the quality-quantity partnership.

Confirmed speakers include:

 Robert Terry, Wellcome Trust
 Sir Muir Gray, NHS
 Richard Smith, former BMJ Editor
 Tony Peatfield, Medical Research Council
 Ben Goldacre, Journalist (Bad Science, The Guardian) and NHS Clinician

For more information, please see our online programme.

The colloquium will be held at The Royal College of Physicians (London, 
UK) in the Council Chamber. This BioMed Central Open Access Colloquium 
promises to be an unmissable opportunity to exchange perspectives on 
open access, and to discuss the important relationship between quality 
and quantity in open access medical publishing.

Space is limited, so to ensure your place please register today using 
our online form. Closer to the date, you will be contacted to confirm 
your attendance in advance.

We hope that you will be able to join us.
