ETD2011 - 14th International Symposium on Electronic Theses and Dissertations 13-17 September 2011 Cape Town, South Africa
ETD2011 is the latest in a series of international conferences of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD). The expected audience will include advocates, practitioners, researchers and students working in the area of electronic theses and dissertations and, more broadly, open access and digital repositories.  The conference is hosted in South Africa by the SA National Research Foundation, University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University.  ETD2011 will provide local and international attendees with the opportunity to exchange ideas and enrich their respective programmes, bridging the infamous north-south divide.
The theme of ETD2011 is: "From Islands to Global Interconnectedness", in the spirit of the African philosophical notion that we are who we are because of others. Open Access repositories, and ETD programmes in particular, have reached a stage of widespread acceptance around the world.  Many attendees will come from institutions where ETD programmes already exist or are imminent.  It is therefore appropriate that we now look to the development of relationships among institutions to, firstly, support one another at the level of policy and advocacy, secondly, provide users with services that span institutional and regional 
boundaries and, lastly, address global problems such as preservation by means of collaboration.
The conference programme will include technical paper sessions, plenary keynote addresses, poster presentations, panels, tutorials and workshops -- to cater for a broad audience of participants.
We invite you to attend ETD2011! The programme overview can be viewed here: http://dl.cs.uct.ac.za/conferences/etd2011/programme
