We are delighted to announce that registration is now live for
Repository Fringe 2013!
Repository Fringe takes place in Edinburgh and runs from 31st July (our
workshop day) until 2nd August 2013, and you can now use our booking
form (http://rfringe13.eventbrite.com/) to secure your free place.
As you register you will see we have a few more questions to help us
create a fantastic event this year and to help us in planning future
events. We particularly encourage you to suggest ideas, presentations,
round tables, etc. Repository Fringe is an event for and by the
repository community: it is your contributions that make it such a
stimulating, timely, and enjoyable event!
Programme details will be emerging over the coming weeks however we are
delighted to launch registration with the news that Mark Hahnel, will be
our Closing Keynote speaker.
Mark is the founder of figshare, an open data tool that allows
researchers to publish all of their data in a citable, searchable and
sharable manner. Mark is a former stem cell biologist, having completed
his PhD in stem cell biology at Imperial College London and previously
studied genetics in both Newcastle and Leeds. He is passionate about
open science and the potential it has to revolutionise the research
community. For more information about figshare, visit
http://figshare.com. You can follow him at @markhahnel.
Mark will be familiar to many at Repository Fringe and we know he will
provide an excellent close to our three days of repository ideas,
discussion and networking.
So, register, tell us your ideas and we very much look forward to seeing
you this summer,
Nicola & the Repository Fringe Organising Team
