SECOND INTERNATIONAL PKP SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING CONFERENCE
PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT

The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce that the second  
international PKP conference will be held from July 8 - 10, 2009 in  
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The first PKP conference was an  
overwhelming success with presentations and participants from around  
the world.  A selected set of conference papers was subsequently  
published in the October 2007 issue of First Monday.

The conference will appeal not just to members of the PKP community,

sessions on new reading and publishing technologies; open access  
initiatives; alternative publishing and funding models; national and  
international collaborative projects;  new roles and partnerships for  
libraries, scholarly publishers and others; and sustainability for  
open access publishing and open source software.   Prospective and  
first time users of OJS and other PKP software will be able to learn  
more about the systems and establish contacts with the PKP community.  
Experienced implementers, developers, and system administrators will  
have an opportunity to participate in technical sessions and exchange  
information.

The conference will commence with an opening keynote session on the  
evening of July 8 convened by John Willinsky, the founder of the  
Public Knowledge Project.   There will be several pre-conference  
workshops on July 8, and the main conference program will present a  
combination of concurrent and single track sessions during on July 9  
and 10.  The conference will conclude with three special symposia on  
community and network building intended for each of the core PKP  
constituents:  journal editors and publishers; librarians; and  
software developers.

The conference will be hosted at Simon Fraser University's downtown  
campus and will be adjacent to a wide range of accommodations,  
restaurants, and other popular tourist destinations.  Please mark the
