A message from the Open Repositories 2016 Conference organisers
The final deadline for submitting proposals and scholarship programme applications to the Eleventh International Conference on Open Repositories (@OR2016Dub and #or2016Dub) closes on Monday, Feb. 8, 2016. The conference is scheduled to take place June 13-16 in Dublin and is being hosted by Trinity College Dublin, along with collaborators in the Royal Irish Academy and University College Dublin.
The theme this year is "Illuminating the World." You may review the call for proposals here: http://or2016.net/call-for-papers
The EPrints Interest Group at Open Repositories is looking for examples and stories on how you are using EPrints - and it's a great opportunity to showcase EPrints activity and to meet EPrints experts, users and practitioners.
The OR2016 Scholarship Programme enables us to provide support for a small number of full registered places (including the poster reception and banquet) for the conference in Dublin. The programme is open to librarians, repository managers, developers and researchers in digital libraries and related fields. Applicants submitting a paper for the conference will be given priority consideration for funding. Please note that the programme does not cover costs such as accommodation, travel and subsistence. It is anticipated that the applicant's home institution will provide financial support to supplement the OR Scholarship Award.

We look forward to seeing you at OR2016!
