CALL: Host the Annual International Open Repositories Conference in 2015 | DuraSpace | Open Access News from the RSP team | Scoop.it

"The Open Repositories Steering Committee seeks proposals from candidate host organizations for the 2015 Annual International Open Repositories Conference. Proposals from all geographic areas will be given consideration.

Important Dates

The Open Repositories Steering Committee is accepting proposals to host the OR2015 conference until September 30, 2013. Initial expressions of interest or questions about OR2015 are encouraged and should be received by August 22, 2013.

Candidate institutions must have the ability to host a four-day conference of approximately 350-500 attendees (OR2012 held in Edinburgh, UK drew approximately 450 attendees). This includes appropriate access to conference facilities, lodging, and transportation, as well as the ability to manage a range of supporting services (food services, internet services, and conference social events; conference web site; management of registration and online payments; etc.). The candidate institutions and their local arrangements committee must have the means to support the costs of producing the conference through attendee registration and independent fundraising. The OR Steering Committee can provide further information on costs and fund-raising associated with recent conferences, or a sample proposal, to sites that have a potential interest in hosting the conference."
