Not Too Late to Submit for OR09
Submitted by on Fri, 2009-02-06 17:06
It’s not too late to submit a proposal for Open Repositories 2009! The deadline for general conference proposals has been extended to February 20th, 2009, which means you still have time.
The Open Repositories conference draws a diverse, international crowd - a mix of programmers, librarians, system architects, repository managers, and others. Whether you’re from the academic world or the private sector, whether your research interests focus on the back end (repository development, digital preservation, interoperability) or the front (scholarly communication, open access initiatives, interacting with stakeholders)…you are guaranteed to find an audience at OR09.
But wait, there’s more! Several Open Repositories 2009 presenters will be invited to write full papers and publish in a journal that the Conference is currently finalizing arrangements with. The journal and this partnership will be announced soon. In the meantime, this may become a wonderful opportunity for you to publish your work!The conference will be held at the state-of-the-art Georgia Institute of Technology Hotel and Conference Center and Global Learning Conference Center, where the wireless is free and plentiful, the snacks are abundant, and the informal motto is “Power outlets for all!”
The keynote address will be given by John Wilbanks, who runs the Science Commons project at Creative Commons as VP of science.
Don’t delay! Submit your conference proposals here:
