-- iPRES-2013, 10th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PRESERVATION OF DIGITAL OBJECTS *** emphasizes the significance of preserving scientific and cultural digital heritage across institutional and disciplinary boundaries. iPRES 2013 will further strengthen the link between digital preservation research and practitioners in memory institutions and scientific data centers.
-- DC-2013, LINKING TO THE FUTURE *** explores questions regarding the persistence, maintenance, and preservation of metadata and descriptive vocabularies. The need for stable representations and descriptions spans all sectors including cultural heritage and scientific data, eGovernment, finance and commerce. Thus, the maintenance and management of metadata is essential to address the long term availability of information of legal, cultural and economic value.
iPRES/DC-2013 provides a unique opportunity for interlinking fundamental to cutting edge preservation and metadata knowledge.
