  • Open Repositories 2015 used a form similar to what has just been emailed out to the group. Can't use it directly but can use it for inspiration to create something similar:

    • Potentially based on known contributions/lack of travel support from institution 
  • Application form

    • Everyone seems to be fine with using Google Forms/Google Docs
    • How soon do we need the form done?

      • Ideally have everything open by Open Repositories 2016
