Location: XXX Ballroom. This is not an official part of the VSS meeting, but it has the same unofficial status as the other satellites.

We all hope for an open system of science in which: 1. Journal articles are inexpensive or free. 2. Peer review is fair and efficient. 3. Experiments can be fully replicated by anyone.

Achieving these goals is more feasible than ever, but most publishers, journals, and researchers have made few changes to the way they do business. This workshop will include discussion of possible solutions.

We want constructive suggestions, possibly leading to an action plan.
