*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*

November 13, 2015
Read it online: http://www.or2015.net/call-for-proposals/

The Tenth International Conference on Open Repositories
<http://www.or2015.net/>, OR2015, will be held on June 8-11, 2015 in
Indianapolis (Indiana, USA). The organizers are pleased to invite you to
contribute to the program. This year's conference theme is:

*LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD: OPEN REPOSITORIES AT THE CROSSROADS*

OR2015 is the tenth OR conference, and this year’s overarching theme
reflects that milestone: Looking Back/Moving Forward: Open Repositories at
the Crossroads. It is an opportunity to reflect on and to celebrate the
transformative changes in repositories, scholarly communication and
research data over the last decade. More critically however, it will also
help to ensure that open repositories continue to play a key role in
supporting, shaping and sharing those changes and an open agenda for
research and scholarship.

OR2015 will provide an opportunity to explore the demands and roles now
expected of both repositories and the staff who develop, support and manage
them - and to prepare them for the challenges of the next decade. We
welcome proposals on this theme, but also on the theoretical, practical,
organizational or administrative topics related to digital repositories. We
are particularly interested in:

*1. Supporting Open Scholarship, Open Science, and Cultural Heritage Online*

Papers are invited to consider how repositories can best support the needs
of open science, open scholarship, and cultural heritage to make research
as accessible as possible, including:

• Open access, open data and open educational resources
• Scholarly workflows, publishing and communicating scientific knowledge
• Compliance with funder mandates
• Considerations for cultural heritage and digital humanities resources

* 2. Managing Research (and Open) Data*

Papers are invited to consider how repositories can support the needs of
research data. Areas of interest are:

• Data registries
• Storage
• Curation lifecycle management
• Management and digital preservation tools

*3. Integrating with External Systems*

Papers are invited to explore, evaluate, or demonstrate integration with
external systems, including:

• CRIS and research management systems
• Notification systems (e.g. SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE))
• Remote identifier services (e.g. ORCID, DOI, etc.)
• Preservation services
• Archival systems (e.g. CALM or Archivists’ Toolkit)

*4. Re-using Repository Content*

Papers are invited to showcase how repository content can be re-used in the
context of:

• Discipline-based repositories and services
• Discovery services
• Integration of semantic technologies
• Repository networks

*5. Exploring Metrics and Assessment*

Papers are invited to present experiences on scholarly metrics and
assessment services, particularly:

• Bibliometrics
• Downloads (e.g. COUNTER compliance)
• Analytics
• Altmetrics

*6. Managing Rights*

Papers are invited to examine the role of rights management in the context
of open repositories, including:

• Research and scholarly communication outputs
• Licenses (e.g. Creative Commons, Open Data Commons)
• Embargoes
• Requirements of funder mandates

*7. Developing and Training Staff*

Papers are invited to consider the evolving role of staff who support and
manage repositories across libraries, cultural heritage organizations,
research offices and computer centres, especially:

• New roles and responsibilities
• Training needs and opportunities
• Career path and recruitment
• Community support

*8. Building the Perfect Repository*

Papers are invited to look ahead to OR16 and beyond to consider what the
perfect repository looks like:

• Key features and services
• Who would be its users?
• How would it transform scholarly communication?
• What lessons have been learned since the first OR?
• Or, is it a pipe dream and there's no such thing?

Submissions that demonstrate original and repository-related work outwith
these themes will be considered, but preference will be given to
submissions which address them.

*KEY DATES*

30 January 2015: Deadline for submissions and Scholarship Programme
applications

27 March 2015: Submitters notified of acceptance to general conference

10 April 2015: Submitters notified of acceptance to Interest Groups

8-11 June 2015: OR2015 conference

*SUBMISSION PROCESS*

*Conference Papers and Panels*
Two to four-page proposals for presentations or panels that deal with
digital repositories and repository services (see below for optional
Proposal Templates). 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 an open repository. In general, sessions will
have three papers; 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, poster or
24/7.

*Interest Group Presentations*
The opportunity to engage with and learn more about the work of relevant
communities of interest is a key element of Open Repositories. One to two
page proposals are invited for presentations or panels that focus on the
work of such communities, traditionally DSpace, EPrints and Fedora,
describing novel experiences or developments in the construction and use of
repositories involving issues specific to these technical platforms.
Further information about applications for additional Interest Groups and
guidance on submissions will be forthcoming.

*24x7 Presentations*
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 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.

*"Repository RAVES" 24x7 Block*
One block of 24x7's at OR2015 will revolve around "repository raves": brief
exposés that celebrate particular practice and processes, and highlight
what the repository community is doing that is right. The top proposals
will be incorporated into a track meant to celebrate successful approaches
to repository services.

*Posters*
One-page proposal for posters that showcase current work are invited from
researchers, repository managers, administrators, developers and
practitioners. There will be the opportunity to make a 60-second pitch for
your poster during “minute madness” and a chance for attendees to view and
to discuss your work during the poster reception.

*2015 Developer Track*
Each year a significant proportion of the delegates at Open Repositories
are software developers who work on repository software or related
services. OR2015 will feature a Developer Track which will provide a focus
for showcasing work, exchanging ideas and participating in "lightning
rounds". Further details and guidance on submissions to the Developer Track
will be forthcoming. Developers are also encouraged to contribute to the
other tracks as papers, posters, 24x7 presentations, repository raves and
rants 24x7 blocks.

*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 or a whole day)
• A brief statement on the learning outcomes from the session
• How many attendees you plan to accommodate
• Technology and facility requirements
• Any other supplies or support required
• Anything else you believe is pertinent to carrying out the session

*Proposal Templates*
The OR2015 proposal templates are a guideline to help you prepare an
effective submission. They are provided in both the Word document and
plain-text Markdown formats and provide details around the requirements for
conference papers and panels (DOC

).

*Submission system*
The conference system will be open for submissions by 15 December 2014. PDF
format is preferred.

*CODE OF CONDUCT*

We will be publishing guidelines for conduct for OR2015.

*SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME*

OR2015 will again run a Scholarship Programme which will enable us to
provide support for a small number of full registered places (including the
poster reception and banquet) for the conference in Indianapolis. The
programme is open to librarians, repository managers, developers and
researchers in digital libraries and related fields. Applicants submitting
a paper for the conference will be given priority consideration for
funding. Please note that the programme does not cover costs such as
accommodation, travel and subsistence. It is anticipated that the
applicant’s home institution will provide financial support to supplement
the OR Scholarship Award. Full details will shortly be available on the
conference website.
