Registration is now open to attend the Open Source Preservation Workshop. Organised by the PREFORMA project (http://www.preforma-project.eu/), it is the first in a series of international events planned by this international consortium of technology and content providers, working together on one of the main challenges memory institutions are facing nowadays: the long-term preservation of digital data.
The workshop will take place in Stockholm on April 7, 2016, and will be hosted at the National Library of Sweden.
Check out the full programme (http://opensourceworkshop.preforma-project.eu/programme/), the confirmed speakers (http://opensourceworkshop.preforma-project.eu/speakers/) and the list of exhibitors (http://opensourceworkshop.preforma-project.eu/exhibitors/).
Participation in the workshop is free of charge. Please register at http://opensourceworkshop.preforma-project.eu/registration/ before March 31, 2016.
About the event
The event is intended for 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.
It 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 language of this workshop will be English.
