**DO YOU WANT TO BRING DOWN THE PAYWALLS?**
As a member of the Organising Committee for this special event I'd
like to invite YOU to the Berlin 11 Satellite Conference for Students
& Early Stage Researchers on November 18th, 2013 in Berlin, Germany!
We've been hard at work behind the scenes, and
we are excited to announce today that the conference website is now
online at: http://www.righttoresearch.org/act/berlin11.
We are also excited to share that the conference will include
presentations from Jack Andraka (Winner, 2012 Intel Science Fair),Alek
Tarkowski (Former Member of the Board of Strategic Advisors to the
Prime Minister of Poland), Cameron Neylon, (Director of Advocacy for
the Public Library of Science), and Heather Joseph (Executive Director
This exciting, first of its kind meeting reflects the importance of
students and early stage researchers as the next generation of
scholars and the impact these groups are already having in opening up
scholarly communication. The conference will convene a discussion with
leaders and innovators in the Open Access movement about the current
state of Open Access and what participants can do to be catalysts for
change locally, nationally, and beyond.
On the conference website, you can now apply to attend the satellite conference.
The short application shouldn't take much time and is necessary to
ensure a diverse, representative, and active group of participants for
this unique meeting. With generous support from the Max Planck
Society, many participants will have the opportunity to have their
travel and accommodation expenses covered by travel scholarships,
which you can request directly from the application! Applications are
due by midnight on October 14th.
You can find more information, including a complete list of speakers
and available logistical details, on the conference website.
I hope you will apply today and look forward to seeing many of you at
the conference on November 18th!
