iPRES 2019 – Eye on the Horizon

Share

Homepage-iPRES-website-2019In its 16th edition, the iPRES conference will bring 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. Year on year the debate and research profiled at iPRES have moved digital preservation from a technology driven niche specialism of experts to a global challenge with the community to match.

iPRES 2019 is hosted by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network, a collaborative effort of a group of leading heritage institutes, helping to address the challenge of reliable access to digital resources. The ultimate goal is to develop a network of common facilities, services and knowledge base to improve the visibility, usability, and sustainability of the rich digital collections of Dutch heritage institutes. iPRES and the Dutch Digital Heritage Network are all about preserving our digital heritage for the future.

The Conference Theme is Eye on the Horizon, aiming to broaden the voices and approaches participating in the conference, reflecting the venue and looking forward to the future. The future of digital collections but also the future of the iPRES community. This main theme is subdivided into five major themes:

  • Collaboration: a Necessity, an Opportunity or a Luxury?
  • Designing and Delivering Sustainable Digital Preservation
  • Exploring New Horizons
  • Building Capacity, Capability and Community
  • The Cutting Edge: Technical Infrastructure and Implementation
