Repository Fringe 2014

30-31 July 2014 |

** Presentations and photos from this year's event are now online along with a live blog of day 1 and day 2!**


Repository Fringe provides an annual forum for repository administrators, developers/coders, and information professionals to interact and explore the application of innovative technologies including cultural developments (such as research data management principles and open data, social media, altmetrics) to their ongoing repository work in a relaxed and informal environment.

It draws on alternative meeting formats such as ‘the unconference’, ‘hackdays’, and the wired conference to create an active, participative and eclectic atmosphere within which to share ideas. A ‘festival’ mood is also enhanced by co-location with the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which helps to attract national and international delegates to the forum.

This year’s event will see a return to a two-day format meaning that delegates only need to book one night’s accommodation in Edinburgh, though we would encourage those attending to stay on if possible, to make the most of all that Edinburgh has to offer over the Summer. This year, we would expect to see a return to a Repository Fringe’s original unconference format, with more participation from delegates and fewer plenary sessions.

**The programme for this year's Repository Fringe has now been finalised.**
