For those of you planning to come to iPRES (which I personally
recommend), you should also know that PASIG, the SUN Preservation and
Archiving Special Interest Group, is following on immediately
afterwards in San Francisco, from October 7-9.
PASIG is by design a practitioner's conference, and addresses the nuts
and bolts of engineering and operating digital archives. The size of
the event allows for an uncommon level of interaction across a broad
range of participants, and SUN's sponsorship gives it a technological
depth that is rare at similar events.
