The 7th Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing (COASP) will be held this year in the Trippenhuis at The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in Amsterdam, September 15th-17th, 2015.

The Program Committee have set aside one of the sessions within the conference program as a Show & Tell opportunity for showcasing exciting new products, projects, ideas or initiatives relating to open access publishing as this proved to be such a success last year. Six slots are available and organisations are invited to submit a proposal to us for a 10 minute presentation.

All proposals should be submitted by 31 May 2015 at the latest to:  The Program Committee will then review the suggestions and make a final decision by the end of June.  If you aren’t selected for a Show and Tell then there may be an opportunity for you to present a poster on your topic at the conference.

Please note that while we will be able to cover the registration costs for the authors of successful proposals, we are not able to cover any of the travel expenses that may be incurred in attending the conference.

Further announcements will be made shortly when registrations for the event are open and the preliminary program is available.  Keep up to date via our blog or sign up for announcements by email at
