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:
- addressing practical preservation questions;
- hearing about best practices and new technologies from global experts;
- investigating the convergence of on-premise architectures and the Cloud;
- how to set up, initiate, and audit the metrics of a preservation project;
- key global project updates; and
- solution provider and end customer collaboration.
PASIG is a highly collaborative and interactive forum and generally attracts a large contingent of new participants.

- Digital Preservation Bootcamp
