iPRES 2019 Open Call – The Great Digital Preservation Bake-Off
10 May 2019
iPRES 2019 is seeking submissions from software developers and vendors who would like to nominate software for the workflow-specific software category of the Great Digital Preservation Bake-Off, to be held as part of the iPRES 2019 conference at the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 16 – 20 September.
The Bake-Off is THE chance for vendors & developers to present – and curious digital preservation minds to inquire – how tools fare in comparable situations. The Bake-Off will consist of a number of showcase sessions covering both open source and commercial tools, which will be divided into two categories: full end-to-end solutions and content or workflow specific software.
Submissions of open source and proprietary software are welcomed, including software written and/or maintained by institutions, commercial entities, and individuals. To qualify, software must have reached a stable release and be production-ready by the time of the Bake-Off. Accepted submissions will be expected to give a demonstration of up to 20 minutes of how their software performs digital preservation tasks for specific workflows or content types at the conference.
