infrastructure in place for digital preservation" steht, werden u.a. 
erste Ergebnisse der EU-Projekte

APA Conference to be held at the BMA in London - 8 & 9 November 2011

I am writing to you as Director of the Alliance for Permanent Access to invite 
you to register for this year's APA conference.  The APA is a not for profit 
membership organisation, which includes large international and national 
science organisations, national libraries, funders, publishers and national 
coalitions.  Our common aim is to develop a shared vision and framework for a 
sustainable organisational infrastructure for permanent access to digitally 
encoded information.

This year's APA conference addresses the theme "Putting the infrastructure in 
place for digital preservation" and brings together leaders in the field from 
Europe and around the world, from academic, large scientific research, 
industrial and commercial stakeholders.
Topics will include:
- the challenges which major information holders and solution providers are 
- the latest news on developing a coherent view of what works in digital 
preservation and how the research efforts and developments fit together
- what infrastructure is being put in place to help you
- how to check whether you or those you fund are doing an adequate job in 
preserving information - and how to improve
- how to build the business case for preservation
- how preservation fits into the commercial world, including privacy and 
- success stories from which we can learn

The keynote speaker will be EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes, Vice-President for 
the Digital Agenda; we also have speakers from the Centre of Excellence for 
Digital Preservation in India, the US National Archives (NARA) and Library of 
Congress.  A senior representative of the British Government will speak on the 
second day.  Looking at the role of the commercial sector in digital 
preservation and re-use, Microsoft, Google, Oracle and IBM will be taking part 
in a discussion panel on the High Level Expert Group's report 'Riding the Wave'.

The purpose of the conference is to inform our members and the wider 
international communities about progress in the area of digital preservation 
and related infrastructure from many sources, academic as well as industrial 
and commercial. We aim to get feedback about needs, expectations and 

Traditional memory institutions and at least some of the scientific community 
have been aware for some time about the importance of digital preservation and 
it is very clear that commerce, industry, the arts, banking and investment 
institutions, the healthcare community and governments are also becoming very 
aware of the significance of this major issue.  Attendance at the conference 
will be essential if you or your organisation want to know more about 
preserving your digitally encoded intellectual capital - one of your most 
important assets.

Please register now at http://goo.gl/YZfhD and circulate this information to 
others in your organisation who you feel would benefit from the latest research 
and information. The detailed programme is available on the APA web site 
(http://goo.gl/dozDT), where all the latest news will be found.

Please contact me if you need further details.
