We are also pleased to announce that Dr Cameron Neylon, recently appointed Director of Advocacy at the Public Library of Science (PLoS) will provide the opening keynote for OR2012. Cameron is well known in the scientific community, recognized for his professionalism, experience, vision and influence in scholarly publishing, communication, and research. His attendance at the Budapest Open Access Initiative meeting, advisory role for the Scholarly Communication in Africa Program, and leadership of the Open Society Foundation funded Beyond Impact project are recent examples of his focus on web technology to enhance research communication. After earning his PhD in Chemistry from Australian National University, Cameron worked as a Wellcome Trust International Fellow at the University of Bath; a lecturer in chemical biology at the University of Southampton; and most recently a senior scientist at the Science and Technology Facilities Council, UK. He has also served as an academic editor for PLoS ONE-one of many commitments he will transition prior to joining PLoS in early July 2012. An updated version of the programme including User Group Session details will be announced early next week.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh for OR2012.
