June DSpace User Group Meeting in Geneva
DuraSpace and Atmire invite you to take part in a free DSpace User Group Meeting on June 20th, prior to the OAI10 conference in Geneva.
In this year’s edition of the OAI conference Atmire and DuraSpace will bring DSpace repository managers, developers and DSpace enthusiasts together in a free DSpace User Group Meeting prior to the conference. We would like to invite you to join this session on June 20th at the University of Geneva.
During the day we will cover a variety of DSpace related topics, including the upcoming DSpace 7 and its brand new user interface. We will also give the floor to speakers from DuraSpace, Symplectic, and Orcid. Even though the schedule is currently under construction, you can view the current version on the OAI10 website. To keep the meeting accessible for all sorts of profiles, we will focus more on the functional point of view rather than the technical perspective.
- Debra Hanken Kurtz DuraSpace CEO
- Tim Donohue DSpace Technical Lead
- John Fearns Symplectic CTO and Co-founder
- Josh Brown Orcid Director, partnerships
- Benoît Wéry Atmire Project Manager
- Wouter Janssens Atmire Project Manager
During this day there is time for three 15-minute user presentations during which users can present their DSpace repository story. In case you are interested in presenting your DSpace repository you can indicate this in the registration form.
The event is completely free of charge and does not require you to attend the OAI 10 meeting itself. For planning purpose, we do require registration to have a clear view on the amount of attendees. If you would like to join this meeting, please register on this page by June 1st.
Similar to the previous editions we will end the user group meeting with a lakeside dinner at Buvette des Bains. As this is an outside dining area this is depending on that day’s weather conditions.
Register yourself to this free pre-conference user group meeting by completing this form before the first of June.
DSpace 7.0 Release Now Available!
The long awaited and much anticipated DSpace 7.0 is now available. This release introduces a brand new (Angular) UI which brings together the best of both the JSPUI and XMLUI worlds. All the features you've come to expect from DSpace are re-imagined and re-implemented. This new UI is also backed by a brand new REST API, which opens all data and features to the web, allowing DSpace to integrate or interact with external systems/services like never before. This release brings the entire user community under a single UI, allowing us to move more quickly together.
