The (preliminary) programme of iPRES 2019, Eye on the Horizon, has been confirmed. The 16th international conference on Digital Preservation will be held in Amsterdam.
The iPRES 2019 programme varies from presentations and panels, to posters, workshops, tutorials, hackathons, and demonstrations. Furthermore, Bake-Off sessions, which offer the opportunity for vendors and software developers to present – and curious digital preservation minds to inquire – how tools and software 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. iPRES brings together scientists, students, researchers, archivists, librarians, providers, and other experts to share recent developments and innovative projects in a wide variety of topics in digital preservation from strategy to implementation, and from international and local initiatives.
iPRES 2019 is hosted by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network, which is a collaborative effort of various leading Dutch heritage groups.
