Call for Posters - Developments in Scholarly Communication

The OAI9 Workshop on Current Developments in Scholarly Communication is taking place in the University of Geneva, 17-19 June 2015.

The academic programme for papers is now full, but there is still time to submit a poster

Key dates

Abstract submission opening day: 16 March 2015
Abstract submission deadline: 17 April 2015

You are invited to submit a description in the form of a short abstract if you wish to bring a poster to the workshop giving details of your project. The poster should be of interest to OAI9 participants and directly related to the general themes of the workshop 

Posters will be displayed in Campus Biotech and an extended coffee break will take place on Thursday 18 June 2015. This will give attendees the chance to view these and discuss them with the author. Attendees will also have the opportunity to vote for the poster which delivers the most impact. Posters should be A0 in size (841 x 1189 mm) for portrait or A1 (594 x 841 mm) for landscape. Any special equipment requests should be addressed to the workshop organisers when a poster has been accepted.

If your poster is accepted you should still register for the workshop as normal and you will be expected to pay your own expenses. Owing to the large demand on accommodation, we advise you to register early - you may cancel your registration later if your submission is not successful.

Poster abstracts can be submitted between 16 March 2015 - 17 April 2015 after a quick Lightweight Accounts registration process (different from the conference registration). Decisions will be made on an ongoing basis (and no later than the end April) and communicated to the submitters
