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 to secure your free place.
As you register you will see we have a few more questions than usual to help us create a brilliant event this year and to help us plan 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
