Open Access Africa event in Kenya

This week BioMed Central are hosting an event called “Open Access Africa” in Nairobi.  From their website:

Aim of conference

Open access to the results of scientific and medical research has potential to play an important role in international development, and this 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.

The conference will bring together researchers, librarians, university administrators and funders to discuss the issues surrounding access to scientific and medical research, and the role that open access journals can play.”

I will be following the event on Twitter to see if anything interesting is posted.
