        [Apologies for Cross-Posting: The conference below is far too
        top-heavy on (Gold) OA publishing rather than focussing on
        OA itself (Green and Gold) but it is nevertheless an important
        event, given the growing momentum of OA worldwide and attendance
        is accordingly highly recommended. -- SH/]

Subject: Conference in Brussels on scientific publication issues (15-16
    February 2007)

Dear Prof. Stevan  Harnad,

On 15-16 February 2007 the European Commission is hosting a conference in
Brussels entitled "Scientific Publishing in the European Research Area --
Access, Dissemination, and Preservation in the Digital Age."

The conference is a joint initiative between the Research and Information
Society Directorate Generals and both Commissioner Potočnik and
Commissioner Reding will speak at the conference. Its goal is to bring
together all stakeholders concerned with access, dissemination and
preservation issues in connection with scientific publication and data
in an effort to provide policy options for scientific publishing under
FP7 and in the European Research Area.

All details including registration can be found at:

Attendance at this conference is free of charge but places are limited
and registration will close January 31st 2007.

We kindly ask you to disseminate information about this conference to
your networks and mailing lists as we hope that it will provide the
opportunity for all stakeholders to voice their opinions and collaborate
to shape future European policy in this area.

Kind regards,

RTD Scientifc Publications
