The RIPE website has been renewed and we hope you like the new look and find the usability much improved. Our site is cleaner, clearer and more contemporary, and most importantly better for finding and downloading papers from past conferences. This is the blog section where we will keep everyone updated on current happenings.
At the moment we are eagerly anticipating the release of the RIPE@2015 Reader from Nordicom. That is due out any day now! And the excitement is building for the RIPE@2016 conference next September in Belgium. Working with a couple of young researchers from Australia, we are organising a first ever pre-conference for the afternoon before the welcoming reception. Called ERC@RIPE, the pre-conference will launch a new RIPE initiative to support Early Career Researchers.
Also take a look at Get Involved! to learn about another initiative we are developing in partnership with the European Broadcasting Union. It's called the Global PSM Experts network. If you haven't already, we hope you will join! You'll find past newsletters and contact information. This is a very interesting project that supports global networking and comparative research.
You don’t need to register to access our new site, but if you want to download papers from the RIPE Library then it is necessary to register. We’ve made that easy to do and you only need to provide your name and email address. You will then create a password and after that you are good to go! We did this to solve a problem with ‘open publication’ that colleagues in the network have been dealing with in recent years. We promise your personal information won’t be shared with any third party.
So welcome to the new RIPE site, and have a good time!
