Greenstone on an iPod wins “best demo” prize

admin. Thursday, July 31st, 2008.

A paper by four members of our group entitled Running Greenstone on an iPod won the “best demo” prize at the premier international Digital Libraries conference (JCDL), held in Pittsburgh recently.

We had other successes too. Of ten papers submitted by members of our group, 8 were accepted (well above the odds—the overall success rate was 30%). Here’s a slide the Program Chair presented in the opening ceremony breaking submitted papers down by “continent,” which also included New Zealand, as it has more submissions than Africa, South America, and Australia combined. It was a well-received note of humor, and the audience was quite impressed.

In the DL world, NZ is a continent!

    Congratulations! But wouldn’t Open Access to an article about Open Source make some kind of sense? 😉 I would certainly read it, IF i could get my hands on it…
