Dear Colleagues,


We are here calling for contributions to and participation in iPRES2021, Oct. 19-22, 2021.

iPRES, or the International Conference on Digital Preservation( ), is the premier conference series on digital preservation. Since 2004 there have been annual iPRES conferences around the globe for the international digital preservation community to share their recent research, development projects, implementation efforts, and other practical experiences, and to enhance collaborations within the field and across the related domains.

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the iPRES2020 had to be postponed to iPRES2021. With the support of the whole community, the 17th International Conference on Digital Preservation, iPRES2021, (  ), will be held at the National Science Library, in Oct 19-22, 2021, Beijing, China, and will be organized in a hybrid mode. iPRES2021 will be co-hosted by the National Science and Technology Library (NSTL) and the National Science Library of Chinese Academy of Sciences(NSL).
