About

iPRES 2019 will bring you to the Netherlands from 16 to 20 September 2019
The conference will bring together scientists, students, researchers, archivists, librarians, providers, and other experts to share recent developments and innovative projects in a wide variety of topics in digital preservation from strategy to implementation, and from international and local initiatives. Year on year the debate and research profiled at iPRES have moved digital preservation from a technology driven niche specialism of experts to a global challenge with the community to match.

iPRES 2019 is hosted by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network
The Dutch Digital Heritage Network is a collaborative effort of a group of leading heritage institutes, helping to address the challenge of reliable access to digital resources. The ultimate goal is to develop a network of common facilities, services and knowledge base to improve the visibility, usability, and sustainability of the rich digital collections of Dutch heritage institutes.

Venue
The 16th iPRES conference will take you to the historical grounds of a remarkable city where vessels once set sail to explore new lands. The organizers welcome the international digital preservation community in the striking building of the EYE Film Museum on the northern bank of the IJ river in Amsterdam. Join us to explore the state of the art in digital preservation and set your Eye on the Horizon.

Important dates
