Preliminary Program Details Available

We are pleased to announce that information on accepted paper, panel and 24×7 sessions at Open Repositories 2015 is now available on the site.

The conference received an unprecedented number of proposals this year, with 240 proposals submitted across the conference and interest group tracks. This has also been the most selective Open Repositories, and only 38% of conference paper and panels were accepted in the main track. We have accepted 6 panels, 21 24×7’s (including Rants and Raves), 37 papers and 60 posters which will all give an exciting snapshot of work in the open repositories community.

Stay tuned for more information on posters, interest group presentations, and detailed session schedules, which we plan to post later in April on May 4.
