2013 Teldap International Conference


Highlighting Retrospect & Prospect as the theme, 2013 TELDAP International Conference was scheduled on March 14-16 at Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. In 2008, Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archive Program (TELDAP) was launched to integrate the digital archiving and e-learning projects and carry on the long-term goals. The International Collaboration and Promotion Division of TELDAP held the very first TELDAP International Conference in 2009 to provide a free and open forum for researchers around the globe to exchange innovative ideas and demonstrate exciting results which prompted inspiring discussions on the development of digital archive and e-Learning. Since then, International Collaboration and Promotion Division of TELDAP has been hosting high-quality, well-attended, and up-to-date international conferences annually.

There were five topics of discussion in the 2013 TELDAP International Conference: Technology and Scaling, Disciplinary Impact/ New Model Scholarship, Business Model and Sustainability, International Collaboration, and e-Learning. There has been a steep growth in digital contents over the decade, which demands a new form of preservation scaling. How to manage petabytes data thus becomes an important issue. Along with the development of digitalization, new technologies with innovative data analysis techniques have been invented and applied to the existing disciplinary and inspired innovative applications. To envision the future, the sustainability of digital collection becomes the focus. With limited resources, both cultural and scientific data encounters the challenges in terms of time and space. The future of digital archive project lies in the effective inter-disciplinary, inter-organizational, and international cooperation. Management methods, communication strategies, and troubleshooting are all important aspects in terms of collaboration.

From a series of pioneering national digital projects since 1998 to today’s TELDAP, it is now coming to a significant turning point. The blossom and success of TELDAP came from many people’s contribution. By exploring the crucial issues listed above, the conference  continued to gather field experts, brilliant researchers, and devoted contributors from various institutes and diverse domains, leading the way to the golden age of a brand new digital era in Taiwan.

The three-day Conference was composed of 3 Keynote speeches, 15 oral sessions, 2 workshops as well as the Best Poster Award Contest. Topics covered in the 2013 conference include (1) Technology and Scaling, (2) Disciplinary Impact/New Model Scholarship, (3) Business Model and Sustainability, (4) International Collaboration, and (5) e-Learning.

During the “International Collaboration” session, the DCH-RP Project took a presentation on “Digital Cultural Heritage Preservation“. DCH-RP (acronym of Digital Cultural Heritage Roadmap for Preservation) is a coordination action supported by European Commission FP7 e-Infrastructures Programme, launched to look at best practice for preservation standards in use.

Dr. Antonella Fresa, Technical Coordinator of DCH-RP, took a presentation on behalf of the project.
