Digital Preservation Advanced Practitioner Course 2014
7th-11th July, Vienna

After the success of last year’s workshop, we are delighted to announce the return of this training event organised by APARSEN and presented in collaboration with TIMBUS.

This week-long event in Vienna, will bring together practitioners and researchers at the leading edge of digital preservation, providing attendees with training at an advanced level. The training will aim to cover issues across the digital preservation lifecycle by addressing topics within four main themes: identifying the key issues of digital preservation, understanding the value of digital data, managing and preserving your data and establishing trustworthy repositories. The training will be presented as a mix of presentations, practical exercises and group discussion. The course is the second iteration of what will become a yearly event to be presented from 2015 by the Virtual Centre of Excellence developed out of APARSEN. It will bring together those at the forefront of digital preservation research and training, and it is intended for managers and staff already working in digital preservation. It assumes a working knowledge of existing standards like the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) as well as an understanding of how issues of preservation apply to their own institution.

Course fees are 250€ for 5 days, and this includes lunch and refreshments but not accommodation. Registration is now open via the APARSEN website: http://bit.ly/1gWdQzs

This training event is co-funded by the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development FP7/2007-2013 – ICT-2009.4.1: Digital Libraries and Digital Preservation (grant agreement No 269977), the APARSEN Project.
