Salvate la data: 2011 set 26-28 (Berlino): 3^ convegno del PKP, 
l'organizzazione che offre Open Journal Systems (OJS) e altri software 
open source per l'editoria elettronica e la comunicazione scientifica.

Ricevo dagli organizzatori:

The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce that, in partnership 
with the Freie Universitšt Berlin and Simon Fraser University Library, 
the Third International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference will be held 
from September 26 - 28, 2011 in Berlin, Germany.

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:


We would also like to request your assistance in spreading the word 
about the conference.  We would appreciate it very much if you could 
forward this conference information and the link to the website to any 
colleagues and other contacts who might also be interested in attending 
this event.  We thank you in advance and hope to see you in Berlin in 2011!

Yours truly,
