BioMed Central will be holding the Open Access Africa 2011 free two-day conference at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, 25 – 26 October 2011, and we would like to personally invite you to attend the event.
Now in its second year, the conference will discuss the benefits of open access publishing in an African context, from the perspective of both readers seeking access to information, and researchers seeking to globally communicate the results of their work. Open Access Africa 2011 aims to bring together researchers, librarians, university administrators and funders, featuring speakers from a number of disciplines including representatives from ComputerAid, Thoughtworks and the Pan African Medical Journal.
Open Access Africa 2011 is free to attend without any registration fees. To register your interest, please contact Helena Asamoah-Hassan (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Spaces are extremely limited, so please register your interest soon, and BioMed Central will contact you to confirm your place at a later date. Please note that due to space constraints, BioMed Central cannot guarantee a place to everyone who has registered their details.
BioMed Central is a publisher of over 200 peer-reviewed scientific and medical open access journals. To support researchers in developing countries, BioMed Central operates a waiver scheme that enables authors to publish their research in a BioMed Central journal without incurring the usual article-processing charge.
Should you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact BioMed Central by emailing email@example.com.
We hope to see you at Open Access Africa 2011 in October.
