The Library of Congress will host a JPEG 2000 Summit on May 12-13, 2011.
This program is being sponsored by the Federal Agencies Digitization
Guidelines Initiative and supported by the National Digital Information
Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDDIIPP).
The objective is to bring together JPEG 2000 users, developers, and other
interested parties for two days of education, information sharing,
discussion and planning related to the current state of JPEG 2000 in the
cultural heritage community. The meeting is aimed at members of non-profit
and Federal institutions engaged in digitizing cultural heritage materials.
The summit will include an international group of experts and
representatives from institutions currently employing JPEG 2000 or
researching the benefits/risks of using it as part of their workflow.
The program starts with a half-day tutorial on JPEG 2000 on the morning of
the first day, followed by two sessions of presentations. The program will
conclude on the afternoon of the second day with a small invitation-only
working session to identify key objectives and collaborations for broadening
the understanding and use of the technology.
There is no fee to attend, but registration is required due to limited
seating. Participants may register for the tutorial, for the presentation
sessions, or for both.
Due to the short time frame and limited space, please register soon if you
wish to attend. We will be opening up registration to other groups within
the next couple of days.
