Céad Míle Fáilte

Trinity College Dublin, along with our collaborators in the Royal Irish Academy and University College Dublin are delighted to be hosting the 11th Annual Conference on Open Repositories from the 13th – 16th June 2016. We greatly look forward to welcoming you all to Trinity college dublin which plays host to OR2016.

2016 is an important year for ireland as it marks the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising, a seminal moment in Irish history, which led several years later to Ireland’s independence from British rule. We have also reached a seminal moment in repositories and data management where we are moving from closed access silos to a world of open access, aggregation, interoperation and the eruption of the Internet of Things. We, the Open Repositories community, are leading this revolution and OR2016 will provide an excellent opportunity to reflect on progress to date and plan for the future.

A visit to the vibrant and welcoming city of Dublin offers a chance to see other parts of the country too. with a wealth of sights on Dublin’s doorstep it is the perfect base to explore. Ireland is simply one of the world’s best travel destinations. A landscape of stunning beauty, with a deep cultural and literary history, and warm welcoming people, have combined to earn us this reputation. A social programme can thus be guaranteed that will meet the highest standards.
