Conference Website:

We are pleased to announce a Call for Posters for the “Aligning National Approaches to Digital Preservation II” Action Assembly. This event will assemble digital preservation leaders from a variety of backgrounds (including national libraries, academic libraries and archives, research centres, public libraries, information science/management programs, archives, corporations, and funding agencies) to carry out international alignment activities to support the preservation of our collective digital memory.

ANADP II offers the opportunity to showcase posters addressing the conference theme--alignment within the digital preservation community. Posters will be exhibited throughout the event on the historic patio of the Biblioteca de Catalunya. The top three posters’ presenters will each get three minutes at the main podium to share their posters’ concepts with the plenary audience.

Full poster proposal guidelines are attached. The Submission Deadline is September 30, 2013, and Acceptance Notification will be made by October 16, 2013.
About the ANADP II Event:
ANADP II will be a highly participatory event in which stakeholders will engage in facilitated discussions and action sessions to produce a set of concrete outcomes for the extended digital preservation community in three areas: Community Alignment, Resource Alignment, and Capacity Alignment.
