Austin, Texas What role do social interactions play within repository technical communities in developing distributed services and cyberinfrastructure that help create open access to and preservation of our shared digital heritage? The Sixth Annual International Conference on Open Repositories (OR11) communities will address that question in the state capital of Texas, Austin, often billed as "The Live Music Capital of the World,” from June 8-11, 2011 at the AT&T Conference Center. This popular conference will be hosted by the University of Texas, featuring general conference and user group sessions as well as workshops, poster sessions, minute madness and new types of sessions designed to bring all attendees into this lively exchange of ideas. Mark McFarland, this year's OR11 host organizing committee chair, has announced that the conference web site is now open, with registration and hotel information now available.
