Added on 1 April 2019

iPRES 2019 is excited to announce Portico and the Dutch Digital Heritage Network are generously sponsoring registration for attendees from under-represented countries.

To define under-represented, iPRES 2019 will use the World Bank’s income categories ‘low-income economies’ and ‘lower middle-income economies’. These bursaries are to expand the cultural diversity of the iPRES community and to encourage digital preservation experts from a diverse global constituency to participate, and to involve new participants in the application of digital preservation.

OPF JHOVE Hack Week April 2019

Added on 18 March 2019

The Open Preservation Foundation (OPF) will be running two online hack weeks during 2019. The first, which will take place on 8th - 12th April, will focus on development. A second hack week will take place in September, with a goal to update and create new documentation.

What’s the goal?

The aim of the development hack week is to improve JHOVE for the benefit of its users. OPF plans to concentrate on the ‘quick fixes’ to reduce JHOVE’s issue list and make it easier to assign bug fixes and new features to future releases. There is a variety of tasks so everyone should be able to find something they can work on given the time, knowledge and skills available to them.

iPRES 2019 Call for Contributions Deadline Extended to 20 March (Midnight PST)

Added on 18 March 2019

Dear iPRES 2019 Supporter,

We want to acknowledge the great many people who have already submitted their papers and proposals in advance of our March 18th deadline. Thanks so much to you all!

Over the weekend we have received many requests to extend the deadline for submission of iPRES 2019 papers and proposals for panels, posters, demonstrations, workshops, tutorials and hackathon sessions.

As a result, the iPRES 2019 Program Committee has decided to extend the final deadline for the Call for Contributions. Submissions are now due no later than Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 (midnight PST).

There will be no extension beyond this, as we still need to publish the programme in good time.

We hope this will give those who require it, additional time to finalize their papers and proposals for iPRES 2019, being held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, this September. iPRES 2019 Submission Guidelines can be found here. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by May 24, 2019.
