The Islandoracon Planning Committee invites you to submit your proposals to present at the second Islandoracon, May 15 - 19, 2017 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
This year’s conference theme is Beyond the Island. Since its creation at the University of Prince Edward Island in 2006, Islandora has spread around the world. It has grown to include diverse institutions, collections, and strategies for digital repository management that add to the richness of the Islandora community. The 2017 Islandoracon will celebrate these multifaceted visions of Islandora that are continually emerging, inspiring constant revision in the concept of a digital repository.
A 20-minute talk (plus 10 minute for questions) with accompanying A/V.
A conference poster to be displayed during a poster session, accompanied by a five-minute ‘lightning talk’ style presentation of that poster, which will be known as "Island Getaways." Conference attendees will be invited to vote on your favourite "Island Getaway" to award prizes for the most inspirational posters and talks.
A free-form day for Islandora gatherings. The last day of Islandoracon is open for sessions, workshops, working groups, training, meetings, or whatever events you care to propose. Please let us know what kind of event you’d like to hold, the expected audience, and the space/time needed.
Speakers will have access to a discounted Speakers Rate for registration. Submissions will be accepted until Janaury 13th, 2016.
