DPE/Planets/CASPAR/nestor Joint Training Event: The Preservation challenge:
basic concepts and practical applications

Barcelona, Spain
23-27 March 2009



DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE), Preservation and Long-term Access through
Networked Services (Planets), Cultural, Artistic and Scientific knowledge for
Preservation, Access and Retrieval (CASPAR) and Network of expertise in
Digital long-term preservation (nestor) are delighted to announce that they
will be delivering the latest in a series of collaborative training
initiatives to introduce the Preservation Challenges. This event will be held
in Barcelona, Spain from March 23-27 2009. This event is being organised in
cooperation with the 'WePreserve' Forum.

Benefits of Attendance

Participation in the workshop will give participants an awareness and
understanding of the key digital preservation issues and challenges and an
understanding of the reference model for Open Archival Information System
(OAIS). It will also provide participants with knowledge of the role and use
of metadata and representation information needed for preservation, the
preservation planning process and its benefits to overall digital
preservation strategies, and an appreciation of the range of roles and
responsibilities involved with digital preservation activities.

These concepts will be illustrated by the practical application of tools
developed by DPE, Planets and CASPAR, the major European projects on
preservation. There will also be a number of brief break out sessions where
the participants, divided in small groups, will have the opportunity to
review and discuss among them the topics presented during the lectures, with
the assistance and the guidance of the presenters themselves.


Internationally established lecturers will assist attendees in understanding
the main concepts of digital preservation and how to address them in practice
through a number of hands-on exercises. Students will be provided with access
to online course materials relating to the topics that will be discussed both
prior to and following the training event.


This intensive training programme will consist of three days access to online
pre-course training, fourteen sessions in a face to face setting, a
WePreserve Forum and access to three days of on-line post-course training.
Expert lecturers will lead each session and most will be available through
the whole week for further discussion.




Course Fees and Registration:

*       For members of the DPE User Community, CASPAR User Community and
WePreserve Consortium members - 150 Euros
*       All other participants - 250 Euros.
