OR2012 kicks off in just three weeks time and as the date approaches we will be getting prepared to ensure you have a fantastic experience at the event, whether attending in person or taking an interest from further afield.

We will be live blogging all of the keynotes and many more presentations throughout the week as well as tweeting key updates and information for delegates and interested #OR2012 hashtag watchers. Although we will have some bloggers, tweeters and other dedicated social media amplifiers along for the week we also need your help!

If you are interested in taking part in the blogging around the event – either on the OR2012 site or from the comfort of your own blog – then do get in touch. We are particularly keen to here from those who might be able and interested to summarise workshops and user group meetings.

You may already be aware of our hashtag, #OR2012, and we welcome your comments, updates and discussion here. Twitter users might also like to sign up to our lanyrd page to start meeting fellow tweeting delegates. We will also be grabbing the most interesting tweets, blogs posts, and other web coverage for a special Storify that we will make available after the event so do let us know your highlights!

If you are planning on bringing your camera along to the event then we would love to see your images and have set up a Flickr Group for these. Do get in touch with your Flickr username if you would like to be added to the group.

And finally if you haven’t had a look already now is a perfect time to take a look at the OR2012 Crowdvine and start introducing yourself to your fellow delegates. It’s a great place to start getting an idea of shared interests, set up chats and meetings around the event and just get to know some friendly faces.

If you have any questions about any of the above or think we’ve missed something important out please do leave comments here or get in touch with Nicola Osborne (nicola.osborne@ed.ac.uk).
