Also in attendance was Ken Wood, the Deputy Managing Director of Microsoft ResearchCambridge, who commented, Microsoft is extremely pleased to sponsor these open access research awards. They support the recognition and acknowledgment of the highest-quality scientific research that is broadly available to the entire scientific community, and in which Microsoft Research has a direct interest. This is an important annual event and Microsoft is very proud to be involved in this endeavor.

This year, a new Award was introduced - The Journal of Medical Case Reports Award. The winning entry for this inaugural award was:
