Peer Reviewed Contributions

The peer-reviewed contributions include papers, panels, posters, demonstrations, workshops, tutorials, and hackathon sessions. All contributions should address the Conference Themes and Topics. It is expected that all accepted submissions are from individuals who are registered as conference attendees and are able to present the submission at the conference.

All contributions in the peer-reviewed categories will be submitted through Easy Chair.

You will be prompted to create an account if you do not already have one. After creating an account, you will be prompted to submit your contribution in one of the categories. After submitting, you will receive an acceptance notice and notification from the Programme Committee after the peer review process.

Papers
We invite two kinds of papers – long (8-10 pages) and short (3-5 pages) papers. All papers must be novel, reporting on previously unpublished work. Long papers will be given more time to present at the conference than short papers. Short papers are more appropriate for work in progress, novel ideas that do not yet have results, or small projects. Detailed instructions for paper submissions are to be found under the Submission instructions section.

Panels
We invite proposals for thematic panels to be held during the main conference programme. Panel sessions bring together researchers and/or practitioners with complementary or conflicting perspectives on a topic of importance to digital preservation. Panels should be designed to promote discussion, among the panellists, and with the audience. The topic should be leading edge, have broad appeal to the conference participants, and clearly relate to the conference themes. We especially encourage panel submissions to include panellists that will bring diverse points of view or experience to the topic. An extended abstract of up to 2 pages describing the proposed content and agenda of the panel is required. Detailed instructions for panel submissions are to be found under the Submission instructions section.

Posters and Demonstrations 
Posters are ideal for reporting on emerging issues and on works in progress. Demonstrations provide an opportunity to highlight and share innovative solutions. Both require an extended abstract of up to 2 pages that clearly describes the topic to be presented and states its unique contribution to the field. Posters and demonstrations should aim to improve knowledge, show new technical capabilities, or share solutions and experience in the field. Detailed instructions for poster and demonstration submissions are to be found under the Submission instructions section.

Workshops and Tutorials
Workshops are intended to be hands-on and/or participatory. Proposers are free to decide how to structure and design them. Workshops might concern the development of a skill, or discussion and collaboration on the topic covered in the workshop. Workshops prioritise hands-on work and/or participation, with less time dedicated to presentation.

Tutorials should focus on a single topic. They are an opportunity to explicate a method or procedure, or gain experience with tools. They preferably include some hands-on learning. Proposers are free to decide how to structure tutorials. They can include time for group discussion of the content covered. By the end of the tutorial, participants are inspired and equipped to deploy their new skills.

An extended abstract of up to 2 pages describing the proposed content and agenda is required.

Detailed instructions for workshop and tutorial submissions are to be found under the Submission instructions section.

Hackathons
The Programme Committee invites proposals for hackathon sessions. Hackathons should be hands-on, interactive and should focus on a practical results with wider benefits for the preservation community. Hackathons should bring together community members with different skill sets and professional background to work together and provide time for in-depth analysis, reflection and experiments for a technical or conceptual problem. An extended abstract of up to 2 pages describing the proposed content of the hackathon is required. Detailed instructions for hackathon submissions are to be found under the Submission instructions section.
