  The Organizing Committee invites you to attend the CERN Workshop on
  Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI4) from 20th-22nd October
  2005. This fourth workshop in the series, which began life as the Open
  Archives Initiative Workshop in 2001, is a forum for technical issues
  associated with scholarly communication.

  registration will open from 2nd May 2005.

  For the first time, a call for contributions is being made. Submissions
  are welcome from 2nd until 31st May 2005. Contributions to the technical
  session on Thursday 20 October will deal with the latest in computing

  or that has been specifically designed for such use.  For the Friday,
  21 October sessions, we invite contributions on innovative applications
  of OAI technologies to scholarly communication and issues connected 
  with managing repositories and the relationships with publishers. For
  the session on Saturday morning, we invite contributions on how OAI 
  technologies can be used to enhance the distribution of primary
  scientific data.

  We also invite suggestions for breakout sessions as well as posters
