Meeting Schedule and Attendance

The DSpace Community Advisory Team (DCAT) meets every month to discuss progress on the DCAT activities. We welcome feedback and participation from anyone in the community. Due to capacity constraints on the teleconference line, if you plan to attend the meeting please notify the DCAT chair by leaving a comment at the bottom of the meeting's page.

DCAT meetings take place generally on the 2nd Tuesday of every month via a conference call. The purpose of the meeting is primarily to share news/information and refine our review process. Most of the work of DCAT takes place outside the meeting, so if there are members who cannot attend either meeting they can still contribute significantly to the DCAT efforts. The meetings are teleconferences accessed using the DCAT conference dial-in number. Directions to join can be found on the page of the specific meeting.

The archived meeting notes from past discussions are open to anyone.

Upcoming Meetings

DCAT generally convenes the second Tuesday of the month, at 11:00ET.
