CFP: 7th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (IPRES 2010)

CFP: 7th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (IPRES 2010)

September 19 -- 24, 2010
Vienna, Austria

The Austrian National Library and the Vienna University of Technology
are pleased to host the International Conference on Preservation of
Digital Objects (iPRES2010) in Vienna in September 2010. iPRES2010 will
be the seventh in the series of annual international conferences that
bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world to
explore the latest trends, innovations, and practices in preserving our
digital heritage.

Digital Preservation and Curation is evolving from a niche activity to
an established practice and research field that involves various
disciplines and communities. iPRES2010 will re-emphasise that preserving
our scientific and cultural digital heritage requires integration of
activities and research across institutional and disciplinary boundaries
to adequately address the challenges in digital preservation. iPRES2010
will further strengthen the link between digital preservation research
and practitioners in memory institutions and scientific data centres.


iPRES2010 will adopt a two-track scheme, focussing on research Papers
reporting on novel, previously unpublished work, as well as case studies
and best practice reports in both a *Full Paper* as well as a *Late
Breaking Results* track. The conference programme will be designed to
encourage interaction between these areas, rather than seeing them as
separated fields. A selection of outstanding papers from the iPRES2010
will be invited for submission to a special issue of the International
Journal of Digital Curation.

Furthermore, iPRES2010 will offer a set of *Tutorials* on the Sunday
preceeding the conference, as well as focussed *Workshops* following the
main conference.

Submissions are invited for full and short papers, demos/posters,
panels, workshops, and tutorials. All contributions will undergo a
peer-review process by members of the Programme Committee.

More information, including instructions for submission, is available at
the iPRES2010 homepage. (
