Date & Time


We will use the international conference call dial-in. Please follow directions below.


For our first call of the year, we are hosting an open discussion on what call participants want to contribute and get out of these meetings in 2015. In addition to this, we will also discuss the upcoming DSpace 5 release. There will likely also be an update from the DSpace steering group.

2015 Schedule

Satellite calls are discontinued due to low attendance in 2014.

Similar to last year, we propose to host the calls the second Tuesday of the month, at 16:00UTC - 11:00 ET. Together with DST, we are proposing to switch back to 15:00UTC in March, in order to keep the call at 11:00ET.

Discussed features:

DSpace steering group update

 The DSpace steering group will be hiring a contractor to design a roadmap for the development of future DSpace versions. This Contractor will have to be someone close to the Dspace community. He or she will be performing the roll of a project manager who will be drawing as many stakeholders as possible into the conversation. This way light is shed on the situation from many angles and the discussion on what core features of DSpace should change will be going on.
