The OAI Workshop is a conference on innovations in scholarly communication taking place at Geneva every two years. The formal name of the event is the CERN-UNIGE Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication. The event normally gathers some 200 colleagues from across the world. Going fully virtual this year, we see the potential of doubling the number of participants. Information about former workshops in the series can be found in A Brief History of OAI Workshops in Geneva.
Our vision is for the meeting in Geneva to be a premier 360 research event in the year in which it is held – cutting edge, progressive and challenging orthodoxy. Previous agendas for the OAI meetings can be found at OAI11, OAI10 and OAI9. Earlier agendas are also available on the CERN website. The event will be organised online between 7-11th of June 2021.
The fifth session of OAI12 is “The Future of Open Science” and it will be a mix of invited speakers and the result of this call for papers. The topics of this section are broad, from a visionary look into how the world will look like if the research process is fully transparent, to more specific papers about the future of academic conferences, research data, access to scholarly publishing, research, open research and commercialization, etc.
If you think you could have an outstanding contribution to such a session or if you could recommend a speaker in this sense, please feel invited to submit your proposal here.
This Call for Contributions is open until March 22nd 2021.
