4Science is a proud sponsor of the International BIREDIAL-ISTEC 2017 Conference, which will be held next October in La Plata, Buenos Aires, hosted by La Universidad Nacional de La Plata (Argentina), la Comisión de Investigaciones Científicas (Argentina) and the Consorcio Iberoamericano para la Educación en Ciencia y Tecnología (ISTEC), with the collaboration of the Universidad del Rosario (Colombia), the Universidad de Costa Rica (Costa Rica), the Universidad Federal de Río Grande del Sur (Brasil), the Universidad del Norte (Colombia) and the Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (México).
The conference will gather together regional and international experts to discuss, analyze and promote initiatives and solutions around Open Access, digital repositories, digital preservation, interoperability, visibility and promotion of academic activities.
Among those experts you will also find the 4Science’s Team. During the Conference we will give one lighting talk to showcase how we can help institutions to accomplish their goals effectively with open source solutions and open standards.
A restricted, limited-seat workshop with simultaneous translation (English-Spanish) will be organized within the conference to discuss in more details about the next DSpace 7 version, the recommendations for the next generation repositories from the COAR NGR working group and the interoperability between repositories and CRIS systems, with a focus on DSpace-CRIS. Our CTO Andrea Bollini will be one of the lead speakers. Please, get in touch directly with us or with the organization if you would like to participate.
We look forward to meet all of you in Argentina!
