For five days (12th–16th June), academics, researchers, archivists, curators and IT developers from across the world will converge on London to address these issues during the Web Archiving Week hosted by the School of Advanced Study at the University of London, and the British Library. Web Archiving Week comprises three events: a datathon, a conference and a public event. The draft schedule is available at the following link:
