OAI8, the 8th Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from Wednesday 19th to Friday 21st June 2013. The event is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and contact details with a large public connected to the OA movement. The OAI workshops are a series of the most important international meetings in this field and take place roughly every two years.

Once in two years, OAI8 is going to be held at Geneva. I attended to the 7th workshop (OAI7) for poster presentations.

At OAI7 we had a good time with colleagues from Europe.

I am eager to take part in OAI8, to meet colleagues and become new friends! Of course,
hanging up is not the only purpose. 🙂 OAI8 features some sessions
about altmetrics, which I am particularly
interested in, makes me looking forward to.

New areas to be discussed at OAI8 will be
Alternative Metrics and a special focus on Scholarly Communication
developments in the Arts and Humanities. CERN workshop on Innovations in Scholarly
Communication (OAI8) (19-June 21,

2年に一度、ジュネーブで開催される通称OAIが、今年8回目として開催されます。
私は、前回(7回/OAI7)に初めて参加し、ポスター発表を行いました。
OAI7では、ヨーロッパにいる同志たちと、楽しい時間を過ごしました。 CERNで開催されたSocial
Eventでは、参加者が持ち込んだ各国のお酒に酔いしれました。 翌日のSocial
Event、その後バーで深夜まで騒いだ仲間たちと、2年振りに再会できるチャンス。
私は、是非OAI8に参加し、再会と新しい出会いを楽しみたいと思います。 勿論、仲間と再会し、飲んで騒ぐだけではありません。笑
OAI8では、私が今一番関心のあるaltmetricsに関するセッションが幾つか組まれていて、今からとても待ち遠しいです。
