The Tenth International Conference on Open Repositories 
(http://www.or2015.net/) , OR2015, will take place on June 8-11, 2015 in 
Indianapolis (Indiana, USA). The organizers are pleased to invite you to apply 
to the 2015 Scholarship Programme.

The Open Repositories Steering Committee is delighted to announce that for 
OR2015 we will again be running our Scholarship Programme. This programme will 
enable us to provide support for a small number of full registered places for 
the 2015 conference in Indianapolis. The programme is open to librarians, 
repository managers, developers, and researchers in digital libraries and 
related fields. Applicants submitting a paper for the conference will be given 
priority consideration for funding (please provide details of your submission 
in the application form).

Two questions in the application form ask 'What is it about Open Repositories 
that interests you' and 'What do you expect to gain from attending the 
conference?' You may wish to prepare answers to these before completing the 
form, as the responses to these will be critical to the success of your 

Please note: the Scholarship provides funding only for a full conference 
registration (including dinner and the poster reception). It does not cover 
other costs such as accommodation, travel, and subsistence. It is anticipated 
that the applicant's home institution will provide financial support to 
supplement the OR Scholarship Award.

Application Form http://goo.gl/Vv03F4 (via GoogleDocs)

The deadline for applications is 30 January 2015.


OR2015 is the tenth OR conference, and this year's overarching theme reflects 
that milestone: Looking Back/Moving Forward: Open Repositories at the 
Crossroads. It is an opportunity to reflect on and to celebrate the 
transformative changes in repositories, scholarly communication, and research 
data over the last decade. More critically however, it will also help to ensure 
that open repositories continue to play a key role in supporting, shaping, and 
sharing those changes and an open agenda for research and scholarship.

OR2015 will provide an opportunity to explore the demands and roles now 
expected of both repositories and the staff who develop, support, and manage 
them - and to prepare them for the challenges of the next decade. We welcome 
proposals on this theme, but also on the theoretical, practical, 
organizational, or administrative topics related to digital repositories.
