addition to the program: discussion of inclusiveness in OA community and impromptu BOFs

For the Open Access Symposium 2016 (there's still time to register!), we've added to the program an optional lunchtime discussion of strategies for facilitating a welcoming atmosphere in the open-access community, co-facilitated by Chealsye Bowley and Brett Currier. We hope there will be time to hear a summary of the discussion during the open forum at the end of the symposium. Please consider taking part in this discussion and ensuring that this and future symposia provide room for all voices to be heard.

In addition, we'll have an on-site sign-up for other lunchtime birds-of-a-feather discussions. We look forward to a wealth of worthwhile topics for discussion!
