Final reminder OR2017 submission deadline November 30th


The final deadline for submitting proposals and scholarship programme
applications to the Twelfth International Conference on Open Repositories
(@OR2017aus and #or2017) closes on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016. The conference
is scheduled to take place June 26-30 in Brisbane, Australia and is being
hosted by The University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of
Technology (QUT) and Griffith University.


The theme this year is "Open : Innovation | Knowledge | Repositories."  You
may review the call for proposals here:


The OR2017 Scholarship Programme enables us to provide support for a small
number of full registered places (including the poster reception and
banquet) for the conference in Brisbane. 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.
