Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that full program and schedule details for
Open Repositories 2015, taking place in Indianapolis on June 8-11, are
now available on the conference website at http://www.or2015.net/

The program for this 10th Open Repositories conference includes:

- keynote talks from Kaitlin Thaney of Mozilla Science Lab and Anurag
Acharya of Google Scholar

- a mix of workshops, tutorials, papers, panels, 24x7 presentations,
posters, and “repository rants and raves” addressing a wide variety of
topics related to digital repositories and the roles they play in
supporting open scholarship, open science, online cultural heritage,
and research data

- a Developer Track that includes informal  presentations and
demonstrations showcasing community expertise and progress

- interest group sessions focused on the open source DSpace, EPrints,
and Fedora (including Hydra and Islandora) repository platforms

- an Ideas Challenge enabling small teams to collaborate on proposing
new ideas for moving repositories forward (with prizes)

Coupled with a variety of social activities to help support networking
with colleagues from across the globe, along with exhibit tables from
conference sponsors, OR2015 should make for a rewarding experience for
anyone working in the repositories space.
