Due to demand from many who didn’t hear the news about OR2012 submissions until too late, we have made one last extension to the deadline for papers to be submitted to OR2012. You can now make submissions for papers and workshops until midnight GMT on Thursday March 8th (that’s 2012-03-08T24:00:00Z for those of you who prefer  standard timesAlarm clock by moonrhino@flickr CC-BY-SA.)

This really is the final extension we can offer for papers. To move the deadline back further would risk not being able to notify authors in time to make travel and conference bookings. The change affects submissions to the main conference track and to the Eprints, DSpace and Fedora user group tracks. Remember, at this stage we are looking for a 2 to 4 page summary of your proposal – you don’t need to write a full paper to be considered.

Posters, pecha kucha submissions and other less formal contributions are unaffected by this change and can still be submitted up to March 31st.

Update Monday March 5th: this deadline has now been extended one last time to Thursday March 8th – see announcement

Good news for those working hard on proposals for this year’s Open Repositories Conference in Edinburgh – we’re extending the submission deadline for papers &  workshops by 2 weeks until March 5th. Whether your proposal is for the general conference track, or more suited to the user group tracks for EPrints, DSpace and Fedora, you’ve got 14 more days to refine your ideas for papers. The remaining dates in the process are not expected to shift, so you’ll still have plenty of time to make arrangements to attend.

5th  Mar 2012 Deadline for papers, workshops&  user group sessions
31st Mar 2012 Deadline for posters, Pecha Kucha and demos
6th  Apr 2012 Workshop/paper submitters notified
11th May 2012 Poster/demo/Pecha Kucha submitters notified
9th  Jul 2012 Conference pre-workshops begin

 

Workshop proposals can be made now by email to OR2012@ed.ac.uk; we’ve already received a number of exciting ideas so we would encourage you not to wait until the deadline if you haven’t already been in touch.

Due to a glitch with the submission system we can’t yet take paper submissions but we expect this to be resolved next week, and we’ll make an announcement at that time. Full details will be provided on the OR2012 web site at http://or2012.ed.ac.uk/

This year’s event will also have more space for informal, unconference-style contributions as well as the Developer Challenge. If a full paper isn’t for you, consider contributing in another way. We’ll be releasing more details nearer the event. This will include Pecha Kuchas and poster sessions with a deadline of the 31st of March.
