This proposal is for a full day workshop to be held at the IPRES 2015 conference. The focus of the workshop will be on areas in the digital preservation field which could benefit from benchmarking. Benchmarking is a method of comparing entities against a well-defined standard (i.e. benchmark). The workshop is focused on discussing software benchmarking practices in digital preservation and how these can contribute to improving digital preservation tools.
