Open Repositories 2012 Call for Proposals


Open Repositories 2012 - "Open Services for Open Content: Local In/Global
Out"


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.


Submission process


Conference papers
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.
