IPRES 2012


“Preserving for the Future” – The Ninth Annual International Conference on the Preservation of Digital Objects (IPRES 2012)

The DCI was pleased to be working with iPres to host the IPRES 2012 conference at the Chestnut Convention Centre in the heart of Toronto’s downtown.

From October 1-5, 2012, the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information hosted the ninth annual iPRES Conference.  Previous conferences were held in Beijing (2004, 2007), Göttingen (2005), Ithaca, NY (2006), London (2008), San Francisco (2009), Vienna (2010), and Singapore (2011).  The subsequent conferences were planned for Lisbon (2013), Melbourne (2014), and Chapel Hill (2015).

The Organizing Committee was pleased to note that the event continued to garner significant interest, with well over 100 submissions received from 25 countries around the world.  Most proposals came from the United States and the United Kingdom, but Portugal, Austria, Germany, Canada and the Netherlands were significant sources of proposals as well.  Four workshops and five tutorial sessions were approved, as well as 42 papers and two panel presentations delivered during 16 sessions. The full conference proceedings are available here.
