8th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (IPRES 2011)
November 1-4, 2011

The National Library Board, Singapore and the Nanyang Technological University are pleased to host the International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (iPRES 2011) in Singapore in November 2011. iPRES2011 will be the eighth in the series of annual international conferences that bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world to explore the latest trends, innovations, and practices in preserving our digital heritage.

Digital Preservation and Curation is evolving from a niche activity to
an established practice and research field that involves various
disciplines and communities. iPRES2011 will re-emphasise that preserving
our scientific and cultural digital heritage requires integration of
activities and research across institutional and disciplinary boundaries
to adequately address the challenges in digital preservation. iPRES2011
will further strengthen the link between digital preservation research
and practitioners in memory institutions and scientific data centres.

iPRES2011 will feature an intensive 1-week program, starting with a set
of tutorials on Tuesday, November 1st. This will be followed by 3 days of the main conference Wednesday-Friday including panel sessions, poster sessions and spotlight talks. Between Wednesday and Friday a number of focussed workshops will take place. All this will be accompanied by a social
programme offering ample room for discussion and deliberation.

Registration is now available online at http://ipres2011.exxelnet.com/. For all enquiries, please write to Roslinda_Rahman at nlb.gov.sg with the title "iPRES 2011 Registration".
