Event: Fifth International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (iPres) September 2008

As announced on the Digital-Preservation list. I attended iPRES in 2006, when it was in the U.S. and it is an excellent conference. Hopefully, some people who attend will write blog posts about it, so the rest of us will have almost instant information from the event.

The fifth annual International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (iPres) 2008 will take place at the British Library Conference Centre on 29 and 30 September this year.

iPres 2008 is the fifth in a series of international conferences dedicated to promoting understanding and best practice in digital preservation. This is becoming increasingly pressing as the value and volume of our cultural and scientific heritage created and stored online continues to rise.

iPres 2008 will bring together experts and practitioners from across the spectrum of digital preservation disciplines and provide a forum to exchange new ideas, best practice and information about emerging trends and technologies.

Please make a note of, and hold, these dates in your diary. We will contact you again soon with full details of the event and to let you know that the iPres 2008 website and registration have gone live.

Early will close on registration 15 July 2008.

The British Library Conference Centre offers state-state-of-the-art facilities and is reached easily from St Pancreas and Eurostar termini, King’s Cross and international airports.
