PASIG 2016

9th Mar 2016 - 11th Mar 2016

Registration is open for the next PASIG (Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group) conference in Prague.

Please note that the early bird rate of 200€ is available until the end of January. The cost from the 1st February onwards will be 250€.

This is a great opportunity for organisations setting up preservation repositories to collaborate and work directly with leaders in the field. The PASIG is focused on:

  1. addressing practical preservation questions;
  2. hearing about best practices and new technologies from global experts;
  3. investigating the convergence of on-premise architectures and the Cloud;
  4. how to set up, initiate, and audit the metrics of a preservation project;
  5. key global project updates; and
  6. solution provider and end customer collaboration.

PASIG is a highly collaborative and interactive forum and generally attracts a large contingent of new participants.

Session Overviews include:

  • Digital Preservation Bootcamp
    • Training in concepts, issues, tools, strategies & approaches for Digital Preservation and Archiving.
  • Open Preservation Foundation Workshop: veraPDF – definitive, open source PDF/A validation for digital preservationists
  • PKX / Practitioners Knowledge Exchange: Case Studies in Preservation & Archiving Architectures and Operations
  • Lightning Talks
  • The Frontiers of Preservation
    • Discussions on the recent developments and challenges facing those who are tackling digital preservation.
  • Industry Collaboration and Solution Vendor Presentations
  • Project Updates and Digital Preservation Community Developments
  • Hardening Existing Systems with Preservation Capabilities
