Please excuse any duplication; this announcement is being sent to multiple lists.


You are invited to participate in the PREMIS Implementation Fair, a workshop held in association with the 11th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects (iPRES2014) in Melbourne on October 6, 2014. 


The event will:

-          give an overview of PREMIS 

-          explore enhancements in PREMIS version 3, including changes to the data model and enhanced descriptions of environments

-          discuss what conformance to PREMIS entails

-          consider challenges of implementation.


As always, the Implementation Fair is a fabulous opportunity to:

-          give implementers of the PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata an opportunity to meet with one another and discuss implementation issues

-          get information on the latest PREMIS updates, tools, and Editorial Committee activities

-          share information about projects, problems and solutions.


If you are a PREMIS implementer who wants to share information about your PREMIS implementations or have issues to discuss please contact us. We would welcome any presentations, but would encourage a focus on challenges of implementing PREMIS or novel ways of utilising PREMIS. If you are interested, or would like further information please get in touch with Eld Zierau [[log in to unmask]] and Peter McKinney [[log in to unmask]].
