PREFORMA International Conference

| Free

Oct 11 - Oct 12

On behalf of the PREFORMA Consortium, you are invited to the International Conference in Tallinn on 11-12 October 2017, in conjunction with the Estonian EU Presidency.

The aim of the event, which will be hosted by the National Library of Estonia, is to highlight the importance of standardisation and file format validation for the long term preservation of digital cultural content, present the open source conformance checkers developed in PREFORMA and look at future challenges and opportunities.

The event is intended for anyone dealing with digital preservation of images, documents and audiovisual files and it is a great opportunity to ask and exchange with international experts, fellow archivists and even Open Source developers about file format questions, issues and challenges we are facing today.
