Dear Invenio developer or user,

We would like to announce the forth Invenio User Group Workshop, to be held by the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) on the research campus of Garching from Tuesday, 21 March to Friday, 24 March 2017. This workshop is jointly organized by CERN and MLZ for JOIN2.

It is intended for Invenio administrators and will consist of a series of lectures, practical exercises, and discussions with Invenio developers. The goal is to enable better understanding of Invenio features and capabilities, to discuss specific needs, forthcoming features and developments, etc.

The Invenio User Group Workshop 2017 will address a wide range of topics related to practical aspects of running digital repository services. We welcome proposals for presentations especially on the following themes:

1. Invenio for libraries
Talks are invited on how Invenio addresses integrated library system needs such as acquisition, circulation, reporting, statistics, discovery tools, matching and merging tools.

2. Invenio in the Open Access world
Talks are invited to demonstrate how Invenio connects to the Open Access content publishing world including topics such as persistent identifiers for material, authors, grants, licensing issues, authentication (with ORCID), e-publishing, open access and open data publishing challenges (e.g. OpenAPC, OpenAire compatibility).

3. Invenio for service managers
Talks are invited to demonstrate the use of Invenio throughout the life cycle of services, from the initial installation and customisation, through maintenance, continuous improvement to user support and service monitoring practices.

4. Invenio for multimedia
Talks are invited to explain how Invenio can be used to collect multimedia content produced by institutional audiovisual services and how this material is disseminated to grand-public.

5. Invenio for research data
Talks are invited on how Invenio operates with collections of datasets, focusing on the specificities of managing very large files from scientific experiments.

6. Proposals for Tutorials are also welcomed, with practical hands-on sessions aimed at developers or system managers.

Any other topics of interest as well as reports on your own experience with Invenio are most welcome.

Abstract submission and registration are open now!

Please circulate this workshop link also among colleagues who might be interested in.

Looking forward to seeing you.
