Apologies for Cross-Posting

                  Call for Conference Hosts

                    iPRES 2017, 2018, 2019


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 iPRES 2015 coming up in North Carolina in Nov. 2-6 2015, and iPRES 
2016 in Bern, Switzerland, October 3-7 2016, respectively, iPRES is now 
inviting bids by prospective conference hosts to run iPRES 2017, 2018 and 2019.

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:

2017: preferably Asia/Oceania
2018: preferably from the Americas
2019: preferably from Europe and/or Africa

However, potential hosts are invited to indicate, whether they 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" which is available from the homepage of the iPRES 
conference series at


Bids need to be submitted by June 14 2015, 12:00 pm GMT by email to
