Universität Hamburg [1] is the largest research and educational
institution in northern Germany. As one of the country's largest
universities, it offers a diverse range of taught programs coupled with
excellent research. The institution is committed to sustainable science
and scholarship and its faculties pursue the concept of sustainability
in its broadest sense in both research and teaching. 

The annual Open Repositories Conference [2] is a practitioner based
conference that brings together people from higher education,
government, libraries, archives and museums to focus on repository
infrastructure, tools, services, and policies. The Conference provides a
forum for delegates from around the world to explore the challenges and
opportunities that arise at the interface of technology and scholarly
publishing and practice. 

More information will be available at Open Repositories 2018 [3] to be
held in Montana June 4-7.

Important dates 

The Open Repositories Steering Committee is accepting Expressions of
Interest (EoI) to host the OR2020 conferences until February 28th, 2018.
Shortlisted sites will be notified by the end of March 2018 and invited
to submit a full proposal. 


Candidate institutions must have the ability to host at least a four-day
conference with up to 500 attendees (OR2016 held in Dublin, Ireland drew
about 500 people and OR2017 held in Brisbane, Australia drew around
330). This includes appropriate access to conference facilities,
lodging, and transportation, as well as the ability to manage a range of
supporting services (food services, internet services, and conference
social events; conference web site; management of registration and
online payments; etc.). The candidate institutions and their local
arrangements committee must have the means to support the costs of
producing the conference through attendee registration and independent
fundraising. Fuller guidance is provided in the Open Repositories
Conference Handbook [4] on the Open Repositories wiki [5]. 

Expressions of Interest Guidelines 

Organisations interested in proposing to host either the OR2020
conference should follow the steps listed below: 

1.    Expressions of Interest (EoIs) must be received by February 28,
2018. Please direct these EoIs and any enquiries to OR Steering
Committee Chair Elin Stangeland - elin.stangeland a ub.uio.no. 

2.    As noted above, the Open Repositories wiki has a set of pages at
Open Repositories Conference Handbook which offer guidelines for
organising an Open Repositories conference.  Candidate institutions
should pay particular attention to the pages listed at "Preparing a bid"
before submitting an EoI. 

3.    The EoI should be fairly brief (1-2 pages, or email length), and
must include: 

a.     the name of the institution (or institutions in the case of a
joint bid) 

b.    an email address as a first point of contact 

c.     the proposed location for the conference venue with a brief
paragraph describing the local amenities that would be available to
delegates, including its proximity to a reasonably well-served airport 

1.    The OR Steering Committee will review proposals and may seek
advice from additional reviewers.  Following the review, one or more
institutions will be invited to submit a detailed proposal. 

2.    Invitations to submit a detailed proposal will be issued by the
end of March 2018; institutions whose interest will not be taken up will
also be notified at that time.  The invitations sent out will provide a
timeline for submitting a formal proposal and details of additional
information available to the shortlisted sites for help in the
preparation of their bid.  The OR Steering Committee will be happy to
answer specific queries whilst proposals are being prepared.
