The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG), among the preeminent international conferences on Digital Preservation, is coming to NYC. Now in its ninth year, PASIG is a practical, solutions focused conference that places a strong emphasis on the following:

  • Comparison of high-level OAIS architectures, services-oriented architecture work, and use cases
  • Cooperation on standard-based, open-source and commercial digital repository platforms
  • Software as a Service solutions for digital preservation
  • Review of storage architectures and trends and their relation to preservation and archiving architectures and research data set management

PASIG is a place to learn from each other’s practical experiences, success stories, and challenges in practicing digital preservation. Join us at the Museum of Modern Art this Fall as the international digital preservation community gathers for three days of exchange and sharing.
