Call for Presentations: UG Meeting 2015

We (hope we) have ways of making you (give a) talk!

I'm pleased to announce that the website for the iRODS User Group Meeting 2015 is now up at Over the coming weeks, we will be filling in information about registration, hotel accommodations, and program agenda.

One page that is already complete is the abstract submission page.

We are seeking presentations on iRODS-related activities such as iRODS applications in life sciences, geosciences, social science, and information science, as well as the continued development of the iRODS core and pluggable technologies.

We will have three presentation formats available: a poster session, 20-minute descriptive talks, and 40-minute demonstrations.

In order to help organize the agenda, we are requesting that presenters submit abstracts describing their presentations topics no later than March 6th.

By March 16th, the program committee will notify presenters whether their talks have been accepted for presentation at the meeting.

We will also be compiling a User Group Meeting Proceedings, consisting of papers written by presenters.

Full details on presentations and papers are available on the Presentation Guidelines page of the website.

Please comment on this post, or contact us with any questions you have about the meeting.

And most importantly, Thank You. The User Group Meeting is as much produced by our user community as it is for our user community. I'm truly looking forward to seeing you in Chapel Hill this June.
