The EPrints community will be holding its next major user group meeting in conjunction with the Open Repositories 2014 conference.
As always, the EPrints Services team will be well represented at the conference, and we plan to talk about our work on Data Repositories and share our future development plans for the EPrints software. We will also provide as many opportunities as possible for you to talk to the team throughout the conference – from drop-in clinics for help with specific EPrints problems, to more general discussion sessions – not forgetting social events!
We also have a developer challenge title to defend!
How to get involved
- Submit a proposal – it’s not too late to submit a proposal for a presentation or discussion on any novel experiences or developments related to EPrints. You can be informed – but not constrained! – by the themes of the general conference (http://or2014.helsinki.fi/call-for-proposals) but we’d also be very interested to hear about your experiences, plans, worries or ambitions for Data Repositories.
- Join us – whether you’re a developer, researcher, repository manager, administrator or practitioner this is a great opportunity to network with the team and other members of the EPrints community, share problems and experiences, and have your say on the future development of the EPrints software.
