iPRES 2020 : Empowering Digital Preservation for the Enriched Digital Ecosystem POSTPONE until Autumn 2021021
The Organizing Committee of the iPRES2020 Conference, after consultation with the iPRES Steering Group, the iPRES2021 and the iPRES2022 hosts, and after approval by the Steering Group, has decided to postpone iPRES2020 until Autumn 2021.
This was not a decision made lightly – we looked carefully at our options (keeping the current dates, cancelling, or postponing) and decided postponing a full year would be the best option，and it also is in the best interest of the international digital preservation communities, due to the COVID-19 disease situation in the world.
As an international conference, it is critical for an iPRES Conference to bring the world community together. And it is even more important to ensure the safety and health of the international participants of such a conference.
The 17th International Conference on Digital Preservation, iPres2020, (http://ipres2020.cn/), will be held between September 21st and 24th, 2020, in Beijing, China.
iPRES 2020 will be co-hosted by the National Science and Technology Library (NSTL) and the National Science Library (NSL).
The Centre Theme: “Empowering Digital Preservation for the Enriched Digital Ecosystem — meeting the preservation challenges of the evolving types of digital content”.
