One month to go and delegate numbers are looking positive, the programme is filling up and the Edinburgh temperature is rising!  We have created our first draft of a programme (both timings and order of speakers is flexible at this stage) and can confirm that Eloy Rodrigues (University of Minho) will be providing the opening keynote. Currently there still are a number of Pecha Kucha, formal presentation, and roundtable discussion slots available so feel free to get involved or speak to colleagues about participating.

We can be contacted at : repofringe@gmail.com

Note we are not averse to conducting a parallel session or two should we be overwhelmed with ideas for presentations.

We are still waiting to hear back from a number of potential presenters so if happens to be you, then please get in contact and become part of yet another great Repository Fringe.

For those not yet registered please refer to our Eventbrite page:

Looking forward to seeing you in Edinburgh.

Welcome to our new blog for 2011. This site is currently under construction but we will be adding content here over the next few weeks and would love to hear from any potential contributors, sponsors or attendees of this year’s Repository Fringe if you have any ideas about what you would like to see on the website or at the event.

For now the best place to find information on Repository Fringe is our 2010 blog.

As we mentioned at the end of March (on our old site) we are currently planning the Repository Fringe 2011 and we now have a wee update to report.

We are hoping to again have a two day repository fringe event and one day of workshops/meetings this year so grab those diaries and pencil 3rd, 4th and 5th August in as the expected Repository Fringe dates.

The dates also cunningly dovetail the Edinburgh Festival Fringe preview week so once we have finalised the details we’ll let you know here on the blog and through the usual mailing lists as it will be important to book travel and accommodation early.

As ever if you are interested in taking part (with a talk, pecha kucha, roundtable, workshop etc) or sponsoring the event it’s never too early to give us a wee shout (repofringe@gmail.com).
