International Conference on Open Access within the tradition of the
Berlin Declaration


The aim of this international conference is to bring together the
various initiatives and key players within the open access movement.
The intention is to keep the momentum and to strengthen the enthusiasm
of all involved in this field.

Key notes, lectures and short presentations will cover a wide range of
subjects, among other topics like "open access for cultural heritage",
"open access to scientific (raw) data", "legal issues of open access",
"authors' attitudes towards open access". There will be room for
discussions, too.

Signatories to the Berlin Declaration have already committed
themselves to take actions within their organizations to strengthen
open access. Berlin Declaration signatories as well as other
organizations and initiatives will report on the progress they made so

The initiators of this conference are committed to give specific
attention to the issue of "open access and developing countries".
