Call for Participation
The Call for Participation is now open! Share your ideas for presentations and lightning talks with us. The call closes on August 19th.
#WeMissiPRES is not a conference: it’s a celebration and a conversation to bring the global digital preservation community together. We’ve scoped the themes* to be all encompassing, and so we’re now inviting the community to offer contributions which match one of the themes. We will then group these and spread them over three day half days of conversation and debate. Each day will consist of three main sessions of about one hour each. The sessions will be brief, and contributions should be too. This event will take place in English.
iPRES sits at the intersection of research and practice in digital preservation so contributions should balance both perspectives: research should demonstrate deployment while implementation should demonstrate innovation.
#WeMissiPRES is online so it can facilitate contributions from around the world where distance might inhibit participation, or from early career professionals who might not normally be able to afford travel and registration fees. So this invitation is especially designed for those groups who might not otherwise be able to attend.
Presentations that encourage audience participation or introduce dialogue between two or more individuals are particularly encouraged. And we expect short presentations to be no more than about 10 minutes long. But there will also be an opportunity for lightning talks. Contributors are invited to estimate how long they think their presentation will last.
Please prepare a 100 word description of your presentation, thinking about the theme* which best fits your proposal and how you would like to present it. Submissions should be made in English.
*You can find a complete description of the themes in the Call for Participation.
