We are using OJS to register AND publish IBICT personnel's participation in events.
This is a bit different than OCS as it refers to meetings, going to outside events not necessarily hosted or organized by IBICT, presentations, visits from other organizations and other internal employee events.
We want to register (all), store (all) and publish (selected) media from each event. For example, IBICT every year participates in the Week of Science and Technology Fair, with a stand presenting its services and promoting workshops in many areas. These events are recorded, but not accessible, so we want to provide that access.
OJS was the software of choice because we want a repository to store this data, and had many issues with DSpace.
I personally think a CMS, in our case would be a simpler and faster solution, but OJS is promoted by the institution, so it's being customized to fit the needs.
Each "event" is set as a Journal, and each area is testing it to identify what customizations they want. Then, these will be analyzed to see if they are feasible.
I'm working on implementing a JWPlayer or other Lightbox/Media Gallery plugin to simplify the viewing of the published event media.
We'll also need to customize each "event"'s translation to remove all calls to "journal" and related terms for something else.
It's still under work and it's not high priority, but it's an interesting case.
