Open Repositories 2010 -- "The Grand Integration Challenge"

Repositories have been successfully established -- within and
across institutions -- as a major source of digital
in a variety of environments such as research, education and
cultural heritage. In a world of increasingly dispersed and
modularized digital services and content, it remains a grand
challenge for the future to cross the borders between diverse

- the web and the repository,
- knowledge and technology,
- wild and curated content,
- linked and isolated data,
- disciplinary and institutional systems,
- scholars and service providers,
- ad-hoc and long-term access,
- ubiquitous and personalized environments,
- the cloud and the desktop.

The Open Repositories Conference (6 to 9-JUL-2010 in Madrid,
Spain) brings together individuals and organizations
for the conception, development, implementation, and
of digital repositories, as well as stakeholders who interact
with them for achieving the widest possible integration in
theoretical, practical, and strategic matters.

The program of papers, panel discussions, poster
user groups, workshops, and tutorials will reflect the whole
community of Open Repositories. Dedicated open source
community meetings for the major platforms (EPrints,
DSpace and
Fedora) will provide opportunities to advance and
coordinate the
development of repository installations across the world.
