Are you missing iPRES this year? Join #WeMissiPRES, not a conference, but a global celebration of iPRES and digital preservation! Events will be spread over three half days in September, the CFP is below if you’d like to submit a lightning talk. (Read more about it here: https://www.dpconline.org/events/wemissipres.) Hope to see you online!
22,23,24 September 2020
The global digital preservation community is cordially invited to submit proposals for a programme of talks and presentations on 22nd, 23rd and 24th September – a celebration of iPRES and digital preservation.
#WeMissiPRES is online so it can facilitate contributions from around the world where distance might inhibit participation, or from early career professionals who might not normally be able to afford travel and registration fees.
All are welcome.
#WeMissiPRES is not a conference. This invitation is generic, the proposed themes are expansive and the review process lightweight. There will be no ‘papers’ in the formal sense and nor will there be a weighty edited volume of proceedings. Think of this not so much as a call for papers as an invitation to sustain our discussions and keep us connected, until the time is right for a fully-fledged conference again. It’s more like a fringe festival or a coffee shop conversation!
#WeMissiPRES is a collaboration and celebration of iPRES and all the digital preservation progress that has been made since the last gathering. To ignite the conversation, we have identified three themes:
Presentations that encourage audience participation or introduce dialogue between two or more individuals are particularly encouraged. And we expect short presentations to be no more than about 10 minutes long - there will also be an opportunity for lightning talks.
