From Mark Leggott, University of Prince Edward Island
Charlottetown, PEI Canada The Islandora team is pleased to report that plans for the upcoming Islandora Camp Europe are coming along nicely. With the new Islandora 6 and 7 releases due in the coming weeks we are sure to have a lot to talk about when we gather in March. The current agenda is available:
There are still 2 "Community Member" session opening (45 minutes each), so if you would like to present on your project (or share the slot with someone else), please let me know as soon as possible. We have already confirmed Daniel Stein and Daniel Jettka (Fedora, Islandora, and Language Corpora) and Anna Perin and Giancarlo Birello (Digibess: thanks Islandora!). We have also set aside 6 slots for the unConference sessions, which will allow those attending to determine additional topics for break-outs as part of discussion on Day 1. The unConference part of the 3-day event is something we started with Islandora Camp last year and it was a great way for the community to let us know what they wanted to hear about. If you are planning to come to Camp and have specific session requests please let me know, as it gives us more time to prepare. We will also be adding an unConference session idea form next week.
Mark Leggott (UPEI and DiscoveryGarden Inc.), Donald Moses (University of PEI), Paul Pound (University of PEI, and Thorny Staples (The Smithsonian) will be lead facilitators and speakers for the Camp. In the next couple of days we will be conforming additional developers from the Islandora community who will be in Tuscany as facilitators for the event.
Register soon and join your colleagues in the historic Tuscan town of Arcidosso, March 20-22, for what is sure to be a stimulating learning Camp!
