DataFlow at Open Repositories 2012

The DataFlow project presented two posters at the Open Repositories Conference 2012, in Edinburgh this week. The posters covered DataBankDataStage and an overall view of DataFlow. The project was represented at the conference by Anusha Ranganathan, Ben O’Steen and Steph Taylor. Sander van der Waal of OSSWatch, partners in the project, and Richard Jones who developed the SWORD2 integration for DataFlow were also on hand to talk to delegates about the project.

There was a Minute Madness session for all posters during Tuesday, with one minute only to explain your poster and interest people in coming to see the posters in more detail at the poster drinks reception that evening. Anusha pitched for the DataBank poster and Step pitched for the DataStage poster. The session was strictly controlled, with presenters being stopped by a strictly enforced whistle after 60 seconds. Anusha pitched perfectly within a minute, but Steph was stopped by the whistle.

This didn’t affect interest in the project at the drinks reception, though, with the team answering questions and chatting with lots of delegates about the project.

And later, a calmer chat, with the poster, at the drinks reception.

The Minute Madness sessions were all filmed by the conference and will be available shortly. A link will be posted here once they are online.
