Experience Workshop: Improving long-term digital preservation
The PREFORMA project, lead funder of the veraPDF consortium’s effort to develop industry-supported PDF/A validation, is inviting the digital preservation community to attend its Experience Workshop on improving long-term digital preservation in Berlin on November 23 2016.
PDF Association members and other developers interested in digital preservation are invited to attend!
The workshop’s objective is threefold:
- Demonstrate the conformance checkers for file-formats developed in the project
- Involve memory institutions outside the PREFORMA consortium in testing, using and further developing the software
- Share the experience gained by PREFORMA memory institutions working with developers under R&D service agreements.
Hosted at the Kulturforum in Berlin, the event will feature:
- talks by international experts in digital preservation on the means and significance of establishing conformance of digital files against standard specifications
- live demonstrations of the software developed by the three suppliers working in the project (the veraPDF consortium, Easy Innova, MediaArea)
- keynote presentations by representatives from the European Commission on the opportunities offered by the Pre-Commercial Procurement instrument
- an informal networking event where the attendees can share experiences, meet the PREFORMA developers and learn about the tools
The registration deadline is November 16, 2016. This workshop is offered at no charge, but space is limited, so sign up now!
