Open Source Preservation Workshop – Serving the Cultural Heritage is the first in a series of international events planned by PREFORMA.
The event will feature keynote presentations by representatives from the PREFORMA project and the open source community, live demonstrations of the three conformance checkers for electronic documents, images and AV files by the suppliers working in the project (veraPDF, Easy Innova, MediaArea) and an informal networking event where all the attendees can share experiences, meet the PREFORMA developers and learn about the tools.
The workshop will take place in Stockholm on April 7, 2016, and will be hosted at the National Library of Sweden.
This event is aimed at anyone interested in digital preservation and cultural heritage: developers who want to contribute code to the PREFORMA tools; memory institutions or other cultural heritage organisations involved in (or planning) digital preservation initiatives; standardisation bodies maintaining the technical specifications of preservation file formats; any other person interested in cooperating with us in defining open digital preservation standards.
REGISTER HERE BEFORE 31 MARCH 2016
Participation in the event is free of charge.
The event will be held in English.
