[EP-tech] OR2012 Submission System Live - 5th March deadline

Dear Colleagues,

Further details about the EPrints User Group will also be shared with this list very soon.

The online submissions system for OR2012 is live at: http://or2012.blogs.edina.ac.uk/submissions/

Kevin Ashley, the Programme Chair has blogged a short post about the submissions system.

Good news for those working hard on proposals for this year's Open Repositories Conference in Edinburgh - we have extended the submission deadline for papers & workshops until March 5th. Whether your proposal is for the general conference track, or more suited to the user group tracks for EPrints, DSpace and Fedora, you've got a couple more days to refine your ideas for papers. The remaining dates in the process are not expected to shift, so you'll still have plenty of time to make arrangements to attend.

5  Mar 2012     Deadline for papers, workshops & user group sessions
31 Mar 2012     Deadline for posters, Pecha Kucha and demos
6  Apr 2012     workshop/paper submitters notified
11 May 2012     Poster/demo/Pecha Kucha submitters notified
9  Jul 2012     Conference pre-workshops begin

Workshop proposals can be made now by email to OR2012@ed.ac.uk; we've already received a number of exciting ideas so we would encourage you not to wait until the deadline if you haven't already been in touch.

This year's event will also have more space for informal, unconference-style contributions as well as the Developer Challenge. If a full paper isn't for you, consider contributing in another way. We'll be releasing more details nearer the event. This will include Pecha Kuchas and poster sessions with a deadline of the 31st of March.
