#OR2015 and #OR2016

The Open Repositories 2015 conference (#OR2015) opens next week (June 8-11) in Indianapolis, USA.  The online programme contains information on the 37 accepted papers, 6 panel sessions and 21 24×7 sessions. The Steering Committee note that the conference received an “unprecedented number of proposals this year, with 240 proposals submitted across the conference and interest group tracks”, necessitating the final programme to be the most selective so far.

The presentation from Balviar Notay of Jisc on “Integration with external systems and services: challenges and opportunities” will discuss the Jisc-funded shared services (including SHERPA Services) and the challenge of interoperability with institutional systems.

The Open Repositories Steering Committee and Trinity College Dublin have recently announced that the Eleventh International Conference on Open Repositories (#OR2016) will be held at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, during the week of June 13th 2016.
