Submitted by on Tue, 2008-05-27 18:27
The JISC Common Repository Interfaces Group (CRIG) is sponsoring a Roadshow due to head out on July 12 for a 2 1/2 week, multi-city event called “CRIG Roadshow.” The event will feature developers who will be pitching and sharing on-the-spot ideas in hopes of convincing whoever is on hand to participate in expressing CRIG’s collaborative slogan: “The coolest thing to do with your data will be thought of by someone else.”
A repository “fringe” event will be coordinated with the well-known Edinburgh Festival Fringe to be held August 3-25, 2008 during the “Preview Week” of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Many of the festival’s two thousand comedy, theatre, music, opera and dance shows will be starting their month-long runs with tickets at half price. All repository researchers, managers, administrators and developers are invited to come and join in Edinburgh’s newest and entirely unofficial festival!
