You may already have seen announcements about Open Repositories 2012,
to be held in Edinburgh this July. You may also be aware that the
call for proposals:
highlights preservation as one of the themes.
Whether you are aware or not, I and the programme committee would like
to remind you that the closing date for papers is only a few days
away: midnight GMT on Monday March 5th. You can submit to a general
conference track or ones dedicated to specific repository platforms:
EPrints, DSpace and Fedora.

Workshop proposals can be made now by email to [log in to unmask]; 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.
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.
