Dear Colleagues,

The Scaling Emulation as a Service Infrastructure (EaaSI) program of work led by Yale University and the Fostering a Community of Practice in Software Preservation (FCoP) (IMLS grant RE-95-17-0058-17) project led by CalPoly University, invite you to REGISTER NOW for a FREE, FULL-DAY workshop entitled “Preparation & Process: #Software #Preservation and #Emulation for Research Data” on Monday, February 17, 2020 as part of the International Digital Curation Conference in Dublin, Ireland. 
With generous support from EaaSI funders, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, travel costs for EaaSI workshop facilitators are covered and workshop registration is completely free to IDCC attendees that can arrive on Sunday, February 16, 2020 for the workshop on Monday, February 17, 2020. IMLS supports the travel of all FCoP workshop facilitators to IDCC. 


EaaSI and FCoP, affiliated efforts of the Software Preservation Network (SPN), both focus on the scalability of software preservation, emulation services and the integration of these practices into varying operational contexts. This workshop will explore software preservation and emulation in a research data curation context through a combination of demonstrations, use case examples and hands-on exercises that convey technical knowledge about emulation services and encourage organizational reflection. 

If you have any questions, please contact <jessica[at]educopia[dot]org>.
We hope to see you in February!
On behalf EaaSI/FCoP Workshop Facilitators,
Lauren Work
