The 7th International Conference on Open Repositories (OR2012)

9 - 13 July 2012
University of Edinburgh, George Square Campus, Edinburgh

Overview

EDINA, the University of Edinburgh's Information Services and the Digital Curation Centre are delighted to announce that the University of Edinburgh will be hosting the Seventh International Conference on Open Repositories (OR2012) from 9-13 July, 2012. 

The theme and title of the 2012 conference at Edinburgh – Open Services for Open Content: Local In for Global Out – reflects the current move towards open content, ‘augmented content’, distributed systems and data delivery infrastructures.

The conference will have both general conference sessions and open user group meetings for the three main open source repository platforms: DSpace, Fedora, and Eprints.

There will also be a strand for the popular ‘Repository Fringe’, an informal, creative gathering of repository managers and developers which has been hosted at the University of Edinburgh each year since 2008 – to coincide with the internationally well known Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
