As of this morning you will find a new tab here on the Repository Fringe blog taking you to our Programme page. Here you can view the latest version of the programme.

We are delighted to have Eloy Rodrigues, Director of the University of Minho Documentation Services, as our opening keynote this year and have Gary Hall, Professor of Media and Performing Arts at Coventry University and an Open Access evangelist as our closing keynote.

The new draft programme features an updated list of presentations with highlights including:

  • Mo McRoberts, BBC Data Analyst on the BBC Digital Public Space project
  • Ben Ryan, University of Leeds, speaking on the Timescapes Project
  • Charles Duncan, Intrallect, on Deposit from a mobile phone
  • Anna Clements & Janet Aucock, St Andrews University on PURE-OAR Implementation
  • Theo Andrew, EDINA & Edinburgh University Library, on Open Access Repository Junction (OARJ)
  • Siobhán Jordan, ERI, on OpenBIZ – knowledge exchange between HE & Business

Round Tables will include discussion of Repositories and the REF; Repositories and Linked Open Data; Social Media & Repositories; and Open Scholarship Principles. There will also be a special session with a wide variety of presentations from the JISC Repositories Takeup and Embedding Programme.

Meanwhile the Pecha Kucha sessions will include presentations from:

  • Sheila Fraser, EDINA, on Using OpenURL Activity Data

Finally we are also hugely looking forward to both the DevSci Hackathon and Developer Day during the Repository Fringe and the one day JISC CETIS workshop on Teaching and Learning Repositories on the Friday workshop day.

It’s shaping up to be a fantastic programme so we would recommend that if you haven’t booked your place yet you should do so very soon via eventbrite. If you have already booked why not have a look at our new(ish) location pages which will help you find out a bit more about the venue, nearby eateries and fringe venues.

You will see that there are a few slots still available for Pecha Kucha’s so please do get in touch with us as soon as possible if you’d like to take part: repofringe@gmail.com.
