iPRES 2013 - Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects: iPRES 2013 - Lisbon
From September 3-5, 2013 (with tutorials the September 2 and workshops lasting until the September 6), the Instituto Superior Técnico was pleased to host the tenth annual iPRES Conference in cooperation with DC-2013, the International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications.
The conference hosted three keynote presentations. On the first day, Gildas Illien of the BNF presented “Darling, We Need to Talk”. On the second day, Paul Bertone, from the European Bioinformatics Institute, spoke on the potential of “Digital information storage in DNA”. Finally, on the final day, Carlos Morais Pires, from the European Commission, presented “Data Infrastructures in Horizon2020: support to data and computing intensive science”. Technical sessions at the conference were on central preservation topics like web archives, digital object preservation, sharing knowledge, repositories, preservation in the corporate world, cooperation, data and beyond data, national strategies, assessment, technologies, governance, collections, and curation.
The conference also hosted an exciting poster and demo session that showcased excellent early results and software demonstrations. The poster and demo session, along with the reception that followed, proved to be an excellent opportunity for academics, students, industry representatives and other professionals involved in digital preservation to network and share information.
