Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that full program and schedule details for Open 
Repositories 2015, taking place in Indianapolis on June 8-11, are now available 
on the conference website at http://www.or2015.net/

The program for this 10th Open Repositories conference includes:

- keynote talks from Kaitlin Thaney of Mozilla Science Lab and Anurag Acharya 
of Google Scholar

- a mix of workshops, tutorials, papers, panels, 24x7 presentations, posters, 
and "repository rants and raves" addressing a wide variety of topics related to 
digital repositories and the roles they play in supporting open scholarship, 
open science, online cultural heritage, and research data

- a Developer Track that includes informal  presentations and demonstrations 
showcasing community expertise and progress

- interest group sessions focused on the open source DSpace, EPrints, and 
Fedora (including Hydra and Islandora) repository platforms

- an Ideas Challenge enabling small teams to collaborate on proposing new ideas 
for moving repositories forward (with prizes)

Coupled with a variety of social activities to help support networking with 
colleagues from across the globe, along with exhibit tables from conference 
sponsors, OR2015 should make for a rewarding experience for anyone working in 
the repositories space.
