This year's iPRES conference will include the latest research in digital
preservation, and will bring together researchers, practioners and
vendors for what promises to be an exciting two days, October 5-6, 2009.
The conference theme is the integration of digital preservation into the
mainstream of digital scholarship, culture, and commerce. 


David Kirsch will be one keynote speaker. David is Associate Professor
of Management and Entrepreneurship in the Management and Organization
Department at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of
Business. With the support of grants from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
and the Library of Congress, he is currently building a digital archive
of the Dot Com Era that will preserve at-risk, born-digital content
about business and culture during the late 1990s. Selected materials are
available to the public at <
<> >.


The conference will be held October 5-6, 2009 in the Mission Bay
Conference Center in San Francisco. More details about the program will
be announced very soon. We are planning iPRES as an "amplified
conference" with presentations along with lightning talks, poster
sessions and vendor displays. In addition we are planning several social
events.  Information on the conference is available at


In addition to the conference, several other meetings related to digital
preservation will be held in San Francisco. On October 7 (the day after
the conference ends), these meetings will occur:


    * Int'l Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) Open Meeting: Active

      Solutions for Preserving Internet Content. Call for Papers.



    * International DOI Foundation (IDF) Open Meeting: Ensuring
