A general presentation of PREFORMA was carried out, and an official booklet was delivered to the attendees, who came from the staff of Boras University (Sweeden), Budapest Museums, Municipal Archive of Schiedam (Netherlands), Malta National Archives and Municipal Archive of Gävle (Sweeden).

The attendees were very interested in the results of the project and also very interested in checking the conformance of their documents through the tools that PREFORMA will make soon available.
