UPEI is hosting a new workshop - register now for The Red Island Repository Institute on Prince Edward Island - August 11-15, 2008
Register by May 16 and reserve your spot at the Fedora-focused Repository Institute on Prince Edward Island, one of Canada’s premiere travel destinations known for its sandy beaches, golfing, seafood and iconic red dirt roads. The 1-week hands-on workshop will be led by well-known Fedora “natives” Sandy Payette, Fedora Commons Executive Director; Richard Green, Manager, RIDIR, REMAP and RepoMMan Projects, e-SIG, Academic Services, University of Hull, and; Matt Zumwalt, MediaShelf.
The Institute is hands-on and is targeted at individuals from institutions planning or running a repository program and is intended for users with a wide range of experience, from managers to programmers. Attendees will be provided all the information and tools needed to implement and maintain a flexible repository program using Fedora. Since the Institute is a combination of lecture and hands-on experience, we encourage all participants to bring their own laptops. This will allow participants to return to their place of work with a fully-functional Fedora installation for further development and testing. Those participants who are not able to bring a laptop will be provided with one to use for the duration of the Institute.
Register by May 16 for the reduced early-bird fee of $1,500 - after that the fee is $1,800. Registration includes meals (except dinners for Tuesday to Thursday), special events and all materials. A preliminary workshop agenda and registration form are now available at http://vre.upei.ca/riri/.
