The Open Repositories 2011 conference is less than 5 weeks away now, so we thought it would be a good time to tell you about about what the SWORD team will be up to at the conference.
SWORD will be represented at two different parts of the conference:
The SWORD Course
If you would like a general introduction to SWORD, then come to ‘The SWORD Course‘ which will take place during the pre-conference tutorials day on Tuesday 7th June. The course will run for half a day, from 8am until 12 noon. This half-day course presents an overview of SWORD from the basics such as use cases and an introduction to web services, to the specifics such as packaging format issues and deposit URLs, to hands-on exercises to create new and customized SWORD clients using a web-based toolkit and the reference implementation Simple SWORD Server. The course is suitable for people from all backgrounds, whether you are a repository manager, repository developer, or interested party.

Introducing SWORD v2: The Next Generation of Repository Deposit
This presentation will be given during the main track of the conference, and will provide an overview of the exciting work around SWORD v2, why it has been developed, what it will do, and hopefully some demonstrations.
See you in Austin, Texas!
