Every year at this conference, the latest developments in the field of digital sustainability are discussed. In a world in which digital information is becoming increasingly important, the question is how this information can be kept permanently accessible. The subject of digital preservation is too broad to solve as one country alone: international cooperation is necessary. The conference is an excellent opportunity for nearly 400 experts in this field to meet: an international group of researchers, students, software suppliers, archivists, librarians and other interested parties. This year’s theme is “Eye on the Horizon”.
As a sponsor, DANS is closely involved in iPRES 2019. For example, DANS sponsors the best poster award. Furthermore, a professional visit can be attended on Friday at the National Archive (NA), the National Library (KB) and DANS. Also, different sessions in which DANS is involved can be attended:
