From December 13 – 14, 2010, the “Open Access – Open Data” Conference will be taking place in Cologne. This international expert conference will look closely on how the Open Access movement has developed within the last five years and what is going to happen within the next five to ten years. Additionally, the “Open Data Movement” that is gaining more and more importance will be under consideration.
The conference is organized by Goportis, the Leibniz Library Network for Research Information. Goportis is an advocate for Open Access. Partners in Goportis are the three German National Libraries TIB (German National Library of Science and Technology, Hanover), ZB MED (German National Library of Medicine, Cologne/Bonn) and ZBW (German National Library of Economics – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, Kiel/Hamburg).
The conference program is not fully formed yet but I hope to see a community-benefit connection than I see in the abstracts on view at the moment. If I do, I want to go!
