Repositories and the Cloud

Tuesday 23 Feb, 2010
Magic Circle Headquarters
London

This free event, organised jointly by Eduserv and the JISC, will bring together software developers, repository managers, service providers,  funding and advisory bodies to discuss the potential policy and technical  issues associated with cloud computing and the delivery of repository services in UK HEIs.

We hope that you arrive with a general understanding about utility computing solutions in the public cloud, particularly file storage.

We expect you to leave with a good understanding of:

  • the technical options for integrating EPrints, DuraSpace and Microsoft Zentity with cloud services;
  • the potential policy issues that arise from such usage;
  • and having had the chance to contribute your ideas and suggestions for future activities in this space.

 

The day will offer a mix of plenary talks (morning) and themed breakout sessions (afternoon) and is designed to appeal to both geeks and policy bods.

The event will be held in London on 23 February 2010, in the interesting and unusual surroundings of the Magic Circle Headquarters (close to Euston Station), and is being jointly organised by Eduserv and the JISC.  There is no charge to attend.  Lunch is provided and there will be a drinks reception immediately after the event so that you can continue networking with other delegates.

For your convenience, this meeting is being held immediately before the JISC Dev8D repositories event.

January 28-29, 2010

The British Library ConferenceCentre, London

 

 

You are invited to an international conference with a range of speakers from around the world. The two-day programme will allow delegates to find out about repository trends across three continents.

The conference, which is the first of its kind, will explore the development of subject repositories worldwide and will see the launch of Economists Online, the key output of an EC-funded subject repository project managed by the Nereus consortium of top international economics libraries. Nereus members will showcase this subject repository in both plenary and parallel sessions, sharing lessons learned and engaging delegates in discussions of the main issues such as content recruitment, search and retrieval services, usage statistics and data sets. The two-day programme will also put Economists Online into the wider context and will allow delegates to hear about repository trends across three continents.

Among the speakers are Clifford Lynch, Director of the Coalition for Networked Information, Cathrine Harboe-Ree, University Librarian at Monash University, who led the ARROW project and is involved in leading the ANDS project, Christian Zimmermann, Economics professor at the University of Connecticut, and Javier Hernández-Ros, Head of Access to Information Unit, Directorate General for Information Society and Media, European Commission. Professor Nick Barr of the London School of Economics will launch the Economists Online portal.

The delegate fee is £155 (approximately €170 or US$245) and includes attendance at plenary and parallel sessions, refreshments during breaks, two lunches and VAT. For further information about how to book, speakers, travel information and hotels, please visit: www.neeoconference.eu
