Correction: In the previous announcement we incorrectly listed "Brian
Westbrook" as presenting a case study on University of California San
Diego's PREMIS implementation. This should have read Bradley
Westbrook. Our apologies to Brad. The corrected announcement is below.


Register now for the PREMIS Implementation Fair!

On October 7, 2009, the PREMIS Editorial Committee will sponsor a  
free, one-day PREMIS Implementation Fair at the Presidio's Officers'  
Club in San Francisco. The PREMIS Implementation Fair immediately  
follows iPres 2009, the 6th International Conference on Preservation  
of Digital Objects, held in San Francisco on October 5-6.

the day-long event. Confirmed case studies include:

     * Implementation in Italy (Angela Di Iorio, Fondazione  
Rinascimento Digitale)
     * Towards Interoperable Preservation Repositories (TIPR)  
(Priscilla Caplan, FCLA)

Other case studies will be added to the schedule in the upcoming  
weeks. Additional panel discussions will focus on the latest in:

     * Tools for creating and transforming PREMIS metadata
     * Preservation systems
     * Implementing PREMIS in METS
     * PREMIS conformance issues
