nestorSpecial Topic: Migration and Emulation


The nestor Praktikertag brings together experts from different communities to learn and discuss new developments and practical approaches to digital preservation.

The main topics of the 2016 event are the long-term archiving strategies of migration and emulation.

A group of experts will present their experiences with migration and emulation procedures. Among these, Peter Pharow (Fraunhofer IDMT) and Stefan Rohde-Enslin (SPK) will present the PREFORMA project.

In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and to ask questions to the attending experts. In addition to the lecture program, various institutions and companies will showcase their solutions at presentation stands.

The event takes place at the State and University Library Dresden (SLUB) on 14 June 2016.
