Open Repositories 2010 -- "The Grand Integration Challenge"
Repositories have been successfully established -- within and across
institutions -- as a major source of digital information in a variety of
environments such as research, education and cultural heritage. In a world of
increasingly dispersed and modularized digital services and content, it remains
a grand challenge for the future to cross the borders between diverse poles:
- the web and the repository,
- knowledge and technology,
- wild and curated content,
- linked and isolated data,
- disciplinary and institutional systems,
- scholars and service providers,
- ad-hoc and long-term access,
- ubiquitous and personalized environments,
- the cloud and the desktop.
The Open Repositories Conference (6 to 9-JUL-2010 in Madrid, Spain) brings
together individuals and organizations responsible for the conception,
development, implementation, and management of digital repositories, as well as
stakeholders who interact with them for achieving the widest possible
integration in theoretical, practical, and strategic matters.
The program of papers, panel discussions, poster presentations, user groups,
workshops, and tutorials will reflect the whole community of Open Repositories.
Dedicated open source software community meetings for the major platforms
(EPrints, DSpace and Fedora) will provide opportunities to advance and
coordinate the development of repository installations across the world.

We welcome two- to four-page proposals for presentations or panels that deal
with theoretical, practical, or administrative issues of digital repositories.
