Computer Science (ECS) at Southampton University

At this highly successful workshop that attracted over 100% of the booked

the world met to consider increased sharing and communications to ensure
the continued sustainability and development of Eprints, the most widely
used software for creating institutional archives.

A report summarising the major proposals to emerge from the workshop, and
highlighting areas for further investigation, is now available
