The Austrian National Library, the Vienna University of Technology and 
Austrian Computer Society are pleased to invite you to the International 
Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (iPRES2010) in Vienna in 
September 2010. iPRES2010 will be the seventh in the series of annual 
international conferences that bring together researchers and 
practitioners from around the world to explore the latest trends, 
innovations, and practices in preserving our digital heritage.

Digital Preservation and Curation is evolving from a niche activity to 
an established practice and research field that involves various 
disciplines and communities. iPRES2010 will re-emphasise that preserving 
our scientific and cultural digital heritage requires integration of 
activities and research across institutional and disciplinary boundaries 
to adequately address the challenges in digital preservation. iPRES2010 
will further strengthen the link between digital preservation research 
and practitioners in memory institutions and scientific data centres.


iPRES2010 will feature an intensive 1-week program, starting with a set 
of tutorials on Sunday. This will be followed by 3 days of the main 
conference Monday - Wednesday including panel sessions, poster sessions 
and spotlight talks. Between Wednesday and Friday a number of focussed 
workshops will take place. All this will be accompanied by a social 
programme offering ample room for discussion and deliberation.

The list of accepted papers, a summary conference agenda, pre-conference 
tutorials and post-conference workshops are listed on the website 
( along with registration
