The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) will host the International Conference on Digital Preservation (iPres) in Glasgow in 2022.

The iPres conference is a global forum for research and development in digital preservation.  Held every year since 2004 it has been held on four continents, embracing a variety of topics in digital preservation from strategy to implementation, and from international and local initiatives.  It welcomes small organizations and large; established leaders and new entrants. Year on year the debate and research profiled at iPres have moved digital preservation from a niche specialism of experts to a global challenge with the community to match.

The DPC is long-standing part of the digital preservation community around the world, helping to address the challenge of reliable access to digital resources from its base in Glasgow, and the Coalition’s network will be used to good effect. Representing and working on behalf of the diverse and dynamic digital preservation community around the world, the DPC will draw from the expertise of its membership, as well as lessons learned in community engagement, administration and the dissemination of research, to deliver a world-class program on the state of the art in digital preservation for all parts of the community from creators, curators, funders, researchers, solution providers and users.
