Call for Papers

The DSpace User Group Meeting 2007 will bring together the international community of DSpace users and developers to share experiences, report progress, and discuss possibilities for the DSpace platform and federation of adopters. The Conference scientific committee invites the submission of presentations and posters in all areas relevant to the use of Dspace (both technical and administrative). We would encourage submissions from

those who have mature installations, and can share their experience of what works both with the technology and with persuading content-owners to deposit;
those with innovative applications of Dspace, perhaps for content other than research outputs;
those for whom their Dspace repositories are an important element in digital object preservation.
