7th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (IPRES 2010)
08.02.2010 The Austrian National Library and the Vienna University of Technology are pleased to host the International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (iPRES2010) in Vienna in September 2010. iPRES2010 will be the seventh in the series of annual international conferences that bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world to explore the latest trends, innovations, and practices in preserving our digital heritage.
Digital Preservation and Curation is evolving from a niche activity to an established practice and research field that involves various disciplines and communities. iPRES2010 will re-emphasise that preserving our scientific and cultural digital heritage requires integration of activities and research across institutional and disciplinary boundaries to adequately address the challenges in digital preservation. iPRES2010 will further strengthen the link between digital preservation research and practitioners in memory institutions and scientific data centres.
iPRES2010 will adopt a two-track scheme, focussing on research papers reporting on novel, previously unpublished work, as well as case studies and best practice reports. The conference programme will be designed to encourage interaction between these areas, rather than seeing them as separated fields.
Furthermore, iPRES2010 will offer a set of tutorials on the Sunday preceding the conference, as well as focused workshops following the main conference. Submissions are invited for full and short papers, demos/posters, panels, workshops, and tutorials. All contributions will be reviewed by members of the Programme Committee. More information, including instructions for submission, is available at the iPRES2010 homepage
