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 on August 2, 2019, in conjunction with the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting that explore software preservation and emulation in context entitled: Multi-threading Software Preservation. This program is distinct but complementary to the Emulation in the Archives workshop offered by our colleagues at the University of Virginia Libraries in July 2019.
With generous support from EaaSI funders, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, workshop registration is totally FREE (including light breakfast, full lunch, and morning/afternoon coffee breaks) and we are offering four scholarships to assist with the cost of travel to Austin, Texas.

EaaSI and FCoP, both affiliated efforts of the Software Preservation Network (SPN), are both focused on the scalability of software preservation, emulation services and the integration of these practices into in varying operational contexts. During this workshop, leaders and participants from both projects will facilitate hands-on exercises with attendees that both convey technical knowledge about emulation services and encourage organizational reflection, policy development, and capacity-building. EaaSI and FCoP facilitators will also provide real-world examples of emulation in-use at their organizations. The workshop will empower participants to envision ways that software preservation and emulation impact their current and future work.

We hope to see you in August!
