The Ninth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2014, will be
held 9-13 June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. The organizers are pleased to
invite you to contribute to the program. This year's conference theme is:

*Towards Repository Ecosystems*

Repository systems are but one part of the ecosystem in 21st century
research, and it is increasingly clear that no single repository will serve
as the sole resource for its community. How can repositories best be
positioned to offer complementary services in a network that includes
research data management systems, institutional and discipline
repositories, publishers, and the open Web? When should service providers
build to fill identified niches, and where should they connect with related
services?  How might these networks offer services to support organizations
that lack the resources to build their own, or researchers seeking
to optimize their domain workflows?

Examining how repositories best integrate into the holistic research flow;
exploring ties between domain-specific repositories and institutional
repositories; and understanding durable content strategies outside of
traditional repository environments are the central themes of the Open
Repositories 2014 conference. We welcome proposals on these themes, but
also on the theoretical, practical, organizational or administrative topics
related to digital repositories. We're particularly interested in hearing
about:

* Unconventional approaches to repository-like services
* Interconnection between publishers and repositories
* Researcher-centered design for scholarly workflows
* Adaptations to support curation lifecycle management, e.g., for research
data
* Real-world scalability and performance stories: working at web-scale,
with big data for global usage
* Requirements for holding restricted or classified data in repositories
* Infrastructure to accommodate national and international mandates for
data management and open access
* Positioning repositories closer to (local, consortial, or cloud-based)
cyberinfrastructure for data processing
* Leveraging connections to external services including:
  * Remote identifier services (e.g., DOI, ORCID)
  * (Re-)using repository data/metadata in new and unexpected ways,
including integrated discovery
  * Scholarly social media services, such as for annotation, review,
comment, reputation, citation, and altmetrics
  * CRIS and research management systems
  * Digital preservation tools, services & infrastructure
* Community and sustainability in an open world


KEY DATES

• 3 February 2014: Deadline for submissions
 • 4 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to general conference
 • 17 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to interest groups
 • 9-13 June 2014: OR2014 conference


SUBMISSION PROCESS

*Conference Papers and Panels*
We welcome proposals that are at least two pages and no more than four
pages in length for presentations or panels that deal with digital
repositories and repository services. 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. In general, sessions are an hour and a half
long with three papers per session; panels may take an entire
session. Relevant papers unsuccessful in the main track will automatically
be considered for inclusion, as appropriate, as an Interest Group
presentation.

*Interest Group Presentations*
One to two-page proposals for presentations or panels that focus on use of
one of the major repository platforms (DSpace, ePrints, 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.

*24x7 Presentation Proposals*
We welcome one- to two-page proposals for 7 minute presentations comprising
no more than 24 slides. Similar to Pecha Kuchas or Lightning Talks, these
24x7 presentations will be grouped into blocks based on conference themes,
with each block followed by a moderated discussion / question and answer
session involving the audience and whole block of presenters. This format
will provide conference goers with a fast-paced survey of like work across
many institutions, and presenters the chance to disseminate their work in
more depth and context than a traditional poster.

*"Repository Rants" 24x7 Block*. One block of 24x7's at OR14 will revolve
around "repository rants": brief exposés that challenge the conventional
wisdom or practice, and highlight what the repository community is  doing
that is misguided, or perhaps just missing altogether. The top proposals
will be incorporated into a track meant to provoke unconventional
approaches to repository services.

*Posters, Demos and Developer  "How-To's"*
We invite developers, researchers, repository managers, administrators and
practitioners to submit one-page proposals for posters, demonstrations,
technical how-tos and technology briefings. 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. Developer "How-To's" will provide a forum for running a
mini-tutorial or demonstration in the developer lounge, if there are enough
interested parties.

*Developer Challenge*
Each year a significant proportion of the delegates at Open Repositories
are software developers who work on repository software or related
services, and once again OR2014 will feature a Developer Challenge. An
announcement will be made in the future with more details on the Challenge.
Developers are also encouraged to make submissions to the other
tracks--including posters, demonstrations, and 24x7 presentations--to
present on recently completed work and works-in-progress.

*Workshops and Tutorials*
One- to two-page proposals for Workshops and Tutorials addressing
theoretical or practical issues around digital repositories are welcomed.
Please address the following in your proposal:

• The subject of the event and what knowledge you intend to convey
• Length of session (e.g., 1-hour, 2-hour? half a day? whole day?)
 • How many attendees you plan to accommodate
• Technology and facility requirements
• Any other supplies or support required
 • A brief statement on the learning outcomes from the session
• Anything else you believe is pertinent to carrying out the session

Submit your paper, poster, demo or workshop proposal through the conference
system. PDF format is preferred. Please include presentation title,
authors’ names and affiliations in the submission. The conference system
will be open for submissions by 16 December 2013, and is linked from the
conference web site: http://or2014.helsinki.fi/
