iPRES is being held in Ithaca, NY at Cornell University in October of this year. It was announced in the spring and I mentioned it here in May. Since the early registration deadline is approaching, more messages are circulating about it. One person mentioned yesterday that is exciting to have an international conference on the preservation of digital objects here in NYS (and not in New York City). Yup -- very cool. Cornell is accustomed to hosting international events and has their act really together.
The registration cost for iPRES is very reasonable. Ithaca can be a challenge to get to, so if you are considering coming to iPRES be sure to check flight schedules, etc. The iPRES site has good info on hotel and local transportation.
And...just so you know...Ithaca in October will be very pretty. The leaves on the trees should be changing colors as our landscape prepares for winter.
