Dear All, just before the April 24-25 Lund conference just announced:

    Third Nordic Conference on Scholarly Communication:
    Beyond Declarations - The Changing Landscape of Scholarly Communication
    24-25 April 2006, Star Hotel, Lund, Sweden

there is an April 21-22 Lund conference, on research-specific aspects
of the same topic:

    1st European Conference on Scientific Publishing in Biomedicine and Medicine
    21 - 22 April 2006, Star Hotel, Lund, Sweden

    "The principal aim of the conference is to broaden researchers'
    understanding and knowledge of the rapid changes in the scientific
    communication and publishing area and its possible implications on
    the research community."

Meanwhile, across the pond at Yale, there is at the same time an April
21-23 Access to Knowledge (A2K) Conference on the same topic at the
Information Society Project:

    The Access to Knowledge Conference
    Information Society Project
    Yale Law School
    New Haven, April 21st-23rd 2006

    "The goal of this landmark conference is to bring together leading
    thinkers and activists on access to knowledge policy from North and
    South to generate concrete research agendas and policy solutions
    for the next decade. This conference will be among the first to
    synthesize the multifaceted and interdisciplinary aspects of access
    to knowledge, ranging from textbooks and telecommunications access
    to software and medicines."

[Full Disclosure: I am scheduled to talk at both the first Lund
conference (21-22) and the Yale conference (23), if I can manage the
flight connections!]
