2020 marks 10 years of the Open Preservation Foundation. To honour this occasion, we invite you to join us at a global celebration on 10 June at the Austrian National Library in Vienna. OPFCON celebrates a decade of OPF, considers our impact on the community, and reflects on our role in the future of digital preservation.
Call for Contributions
The call for contributions is now open!
The theme of OPFCON is open sustainable digital preservation and we invite contributions that consider the following areas:
- Knowledge sharing, policy and best practice
- Innovation and technology
- Sustainability through community collaboration
Contributions should refer to or reflect on OPF and our work, and may take the form of:
Presentations (15 mins)
We encourage presenters to be inventive with the content of their contributions, which may include interactive elements, live polls, demos, and so on.
Panel or roundtable (40 mins)
We are looking for lively debates and discussions! Please tell us who your moderator will be and give examples of the questions and points your group will consider.
Lightning talk (5 mins)
Lightning talks should be engaging and economical. You will have one slide and five minutes to present your topic clearly and succinctly.
Posters will be displayed during the breaks, so chat about your submission over coffee and cakes. There will be a prize for the best one!
