Come help us celebrate the first 15 Years of iPRES, the premier
international conference on digital preservation! The theme for iPRES
2018: where art and science meet: the art in science and the science in
art - aims to broaden the voices and approaches participating in the
conference. iPRES brings together a broad array of practitioners,
researchers, educators, providers, students, and others  to share
lessons learned from engaging in digital preservation, including recent
research, developments, and innovations. MIT Libraries and Harvard
Library are co-hosting the conference is in Boston and Cambridge,
Massachusetts on September 24-27, 2018.


The iPRES 2018 Organizing Team seeks contributions that tell stories
about bridging knowledge gaps in teams, implementing technologies, and
overcoming barriers towards proper digital stewarding of digital items,
assets, works and collections. Be creative. Be inspiring. Be inclusive.
In keeping with the theme, we will embrace creative proposals that
demonstrate how research and theory directly impact and influence
practice at all levels.
