iPres 2022: Call for Contributions now open!

The Call for Contributions for iPres 2022 is now open. iPres is the premier and longest-running conference series on digital preservation. The 18th International Conference on Digital Preservation will be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 12th – 16th September 2022!

iPres 2022 will be a hybrid conference and proposals are welcome whether or not contributors expect to be present on site. Original contributions that will develop the theory and practice of digital preservation are invited. These may include scientific models and outcomes of research, creative solutions to shared challenges in daily practice, outcomes of innovative collaborations, state of the art in education, training and work-force development, and insight-oriented institutional and personal progress towards digital preservation goals. 

 Call for ContributionsFull papers and short papers as well as proposals for workshops, tutorials, posters, panel discussions, hack-a-thons and for the Digital Preservation Bake-Off Challenge are welcomed. Submissions should relate to the overall conference theme Data for all, for good, for ever: Let Digits Flourish, inviting reflection and debate on how digital preservation can support flourishing communities, ecologies and economies and ideas.

 The iPres 2022 Organising Committee encourages submissions which describe collaborations across and beyond cultural heritage domains, and welcomes proposals that describe research and practice in agencies of all sizes and in all sectors. They extend a particular welcome to newcomers to iPres and recent entrants into the digital preservation community.
