Twelfth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2017

The Twelfth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2017, will be
held on June 26th-30th, 2017 in Brisbane, Australia. The organisers are
pleased to issue this call for contributions to the program, with submissions
due by 20 November 2016.

In 2017 the Open Repositories conference returns to Australia, where the Open
Repositories journey started in Sydney 2006. Repositories have come a long way
in the intervening years, having emerged as critical systems for managing,
preserving and sharing intellectual, artistic and scientific output. As such,
repositories have found a firm placing within scholarly processes and becoming
an integral vehicle to moving towards true Open Science. The OR community has
established itself as an important contributor in this space, something we
would like to emphasise in Brisbane by promoting the community’s ability to
always stay at the forefront of development of both infrastructure and good

For OR2017 the theme is Open : Innovation I Knowledge I Repositories, aiming
to reflect how the Open Repository community continues to be at the forefront
of developments, sharing knowledge, and working as an enabler of scholarship
and open science.
