As well, 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. All attendees will be able to attend a range of topical sessions on trends in scholarly communication and publishing, open access initiatives, open source software, academic and library communities, and future plans for OJS, OCS, and the Open Archives Harvester.
