and Workshops has been made. An excerpt from their website¬†indicates that ….

Repositories have been successfully established — within and across institutions — as a major source of digital information in a variety of environments such as research, education and cultural heritage. In a world of increasingly dispersed and modularized digital services and content, it remains a grand challenge for the future to cross the borders between diverse poles:

  • the web and the repository,
  • knowledge and technology,
  • wild and curated content,
  • linked and isolated data,
  • disciplinary and institutional systems,
  • scholars and service providers,
  • ad-hoc and long-term access,
  • ubiquitous and personalized environments,
  • the cloud and the desktop.

The Conference will be held in Madrid, Spain, 6-9 July 2010.

  3. Though I would’ve loved it much more if you added a relevant video or at least pictures to back up the explanation, I still thought that your write-up quite helpful. It’s usually hard to make a complicated matter seem very easy. I enjoy your weblog and will sign up to your feed so I will not miss anything. Fantastic content
