Because good research needs good data

Repository Fringe 2015

03-04 August 2015 |

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.


The Repository Fringe committee are working on shaping this year’s programme but we are delighted to announce that the programme will include sessions from University of London Computer Centre (ULCC) and David Prosser from Research Libraries UK.

The programme will be shaped around the theme “Integrating repositories in the wider context of university, funder and external services” and will include sections on Open Access and Research Data Management.

This year we are also asking for poster submissions – please register for the event indicating that you would like to submit a poster by 10 July.
