First International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference: Preliminary Announcement
The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce that the first international PKP conference will be held from July 11–13, 2007 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The conference will promote and celebrate the quality use of the PKP open source software suite – Open Journal Systems (OJS); Open Conference Systems (OCS); and the Open Archives Harvester.
Further details are available on the PKP Web Site. Ou, en français à culture.libre.ca (Merci, Olivier!)
OA Librarian types note: there will be either a preconference or conference stream relating to library roles, thanks to the OA Librarian types at SFU Library, one of the partners in PKP: Lynn Copeland, G.W. Brian Owen, and Mark Jordan, among others.
Vancouver is a beautiful city, located in the aptly named province, Beautiful British Columbia (in my opinion), and home to several of the OA Librarian blog team (Lesley Perkins, Dean Giustini, and Heather Morrison).
