Open Repositories 2012 Call for Proposals
Open Repositories 2012 – “Open Services for Open Content: Local
This year’s Open Repositories conference takes place in Edinburgh,
Scotland between July 9th 2012 and July 13th. We’re now inviting you to
consider what you can contribute to the conference programme.
Repositories are established in many ways as systems, as services, and
as infrastructure for many types of content in an increasingly varied
range of institutions. They now demonstrate how action on a local scale
can have global consequences – for the institutions hosting
repositories, for those who deposit content in them, and for society as
a whole. Some actions, however, are only effective when coordinated at
national, domain or global scale. Understanding the change repositories
can bring about, the changes they themselves need to undergo, and the
areas in which local action is sufficient are key themes of this year’s
conference. We’re interested in hearing about:
* Augmented content – and mediation and ownership of augmentation
* Delivery of non-traditional content
* Embedded repository service components
* Shared and collaborative repository infrastructure and services
* Open services that feed, support and consume repository services and
content, such as identification services
* Enabling content re-use
* Long-term preservation in and of repositories and their content
* Lessons learned about the difficulties of creating global services
from local roots
and any other topic that you think is relevant to our major themes.
The aim of the Open Repositories Conference is to bring those
responsible for the development, implementation and management of
digital repositories together with stakeholders to address theoretical,
practical, and strategic issues: across the entire lifecycle of
information, from the creation and management of digital content, to
enabling use, re-use, and interconnection of information, and ensuring
long-term preservation and archiving. The current economic climate
dictates that repositories operate across administrative and
disciplinary boundaries and to interact with distributed computational
services and social communities.
Submissions can take the form of abstracts, posters, demos and workshops
– more details are given below. We will consider any submission that
seems to us sufficiently original and repository-related to merit
attention at this event, but we’ll give preference to submissions that
address our primary theme.
The programme will also include the developer challenge and space for
sessions in the spirit of Edinburgh’s successful ‘Repository Fringe’
(http://repositoryfringe.org) event. Further details of these segments
of the programme will be announced nearer the time; they will include
substantial aspects of the un-conference – an event whose format is
controlled by its attendees.
We welcome two- to four-page proposals for presentations or panels that
deal with organizational, theoretical, practical, or administrative
issues of digital repositories and repository services that are not
specific to a particular technical platform. Abstracts of accepted
papers will be made available through the conference’s web site, and
later they and associated materials will be made available in a
repository intended for current and future OR content. Relevant papers
unsuccessful in the main track will automatically be considered for
inclusion, as appropriate as a User Group presentation.
/User Group Presentations/
Two- to four-page proposals for presentations or panels that focus on
use of one of the major repository platforms (EPrints, DSpace and
Fedora) are invited from developers, researchers, repository managers,
administrators and practitioners describing novel experiences or
developments in the construction and use of repositories involving
issues specific to these technical platforms.
/Posters and demos/
We invite developers, researchers, repository managers, administrators
and practitioners to submit one-page proposals for posters and
demonstrations. Posters provide an opportunity to present work that
isn’t appropriate for a paper; you’ll have the chance to do a 60-second
pitch for your poster or demo during a plenary session at the conference.
/Workshops and Tutorials/
Workshops will take place before and after the conference; they will
require proposals and can be closely or loosely attached to the
conference. Closely attached workshops will have registration & venues
arranged by OR2012 organisers; loosely attached workshops are the
responsibility of the organizers, but OR2012 will co-promote them if
they are accepted.
PLEASE submit your paper, poster, demo or workshop proposal through the
conference system. The conference system will be linked from the
conference web site (http://or2012.ed.ac.uk/) and will be available for
submissions in January 2012.
