The 15th International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2020, will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 1-4 June 2020. The organisers are pleased to invite you to contribute to the program.
This year’s conference theme is:
Open for all
In today’s world, access to knowledge by all is viewed by some as a fundamental freedom and human right. In our societies, open knowledge for all can enable sustainable development and growth on many levels. How well do repositories support knowledge in the service of society? How well do they enable local knowledge sharing and support not only academic use, but also use in education and practice?
Invitation to participate
OR2020 will provide an opportunity to explore and reflect on the ways repositories enable openness for all. We hope that this discussion will give the participants new insights and inspiration, which will help them to play a key role in developing, supporting and sharing an open agenda and open tools for research and scholarship.
We welcome proposals on the overall “Open for All” theme, but also on other administrative, organisational or practical topics related to digital repositories. We are particularly interested in the following sub-themes:
Equity and democratization of knowledge / Beyond the repository / Open and sustainable / Policies, licensing and copyright laws / Discovery, use and impact / Supporting open scholarship and cultural heritage
The following submission categories are available:
Presentations / Panels / 24/7 presentations / Posters / Developer track / Workshops and tutorials
Please see detailed information on the Call for proposals page of the Conference website.
