The theme and title of the 2012 conference at Edinburgh - Open Services for Open Content: Local In for Global Out - reflects the current move towards open content, ‘augmented content’, distributed systems, microservices and data delivery infrastructures. Kevin Ashley, Director of the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) will chair the Programme Committee.
The conference will have both general conference sessions and open user group meetings for the three main open source repository platforms: DSpace, Fedora, and EPrints. There will also be a strand for the popular ‘Repository Fringe’, an informal, creative gathering of repository managers and developers which has been hosted at the University of Edinburgh each year since 2008 – to coincide with the internationally well known Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
