iPRES International Conference
iPRES is held on a rotating basis between Asia/Oceania, North America and Europe. In November 2015, the School of Information and Library Science and the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will co-present the 12th International Conference on Digital Preservation. This premier event brings together key theorists, researchers and practitioners to explore the latest trends, innovations, policies and practices in digital preservation. iPRES2015 draws participants from around the world and from leading institutions, projects and initiatives currently working in this domain. The last time this meeting was held in the United States was in October of 2009 in San Francisco. With so many years since the last US venue we expect approximately 300 participants to this conference.
The conference features key notes, conference sessions, workshops, tutorials, poster sessions and a series of ancillary social activities.
Conference topics include but are not limited to explorations in digital preservation focused on:
Institutional opportunities and challenges
Infrastructure (organizational and technological) opportunities and challenges
Education and training
