[InetBib] Bids to host iPRES 2014, 2015, 2016

+++ Apologies for cross-posting +++

Call for Bids to host iPRES

iPRES has evolved into the main international conference on the preservation
of digital objects. Having been held annually since 2004 in places all around
the world, with iPRES2011 coming up in Singapore in November, and iPRES2012
and iPRES2013 to take place in Toronto and Lisbon, respectively, iPRES is now
inviting bids of potential conference hosts to run iPRES 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Potential hosts are invited to submit a proposal for hosting any of the
upcoming 3 editions of iPRES. Yet, with iPRES being committed to cover the
digital preservation community as well as possible, we will aim at giving
preference to the following regions for the annual editions as follows if all
other qualitative aspects of two competing bids are equal:

2014: preferably Asia/Oceania 
2015: preferably from the Americas 
2016: preferably from Europe and/or Africa 
However, potential hosts are invited to indicate, whether they would prefer
to see their bid limited to a specific year, or whether they would, in
principle, be willing to host iPRES in any or two of the three years that the
call is currently open for. 

Bids should follow the guidelines outlined in the "Guidelines for preparing
bids to host iPRES":

Bids need to be submitted by October 16 2011, 12:00 pm GMT by email to
rauber@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx indicating "iPRES hosting bid" in the subject line.
