30 June 2015 | 10:00 - 16:00 York | Gray's Court Hotel

Format and aims

DPC Members are invited to join us on Tuesday 30th June for the first in a series of annual networking days. We're taking over the Gray's Court Hotel in York for an "unconference style" day of knowledge exchange on digital preservation challenges. The agenda will be set by you, our members, on the day. Connecting the Bits will be an opportunity for us all to align around key themes that we can discuss and tackle collaboratively over the coming year with the support of the DPC's Research and Practice and Workforce Development workstreams.

Who is the event for?

Connecting the Bits is likely to be most useful for middle managers and practitioners who are engaged in digital preservation activities at your organisation. Full members can register up to 3 delegates and are asked to prepare a 3 minute presentation on 3 key topics: 1 recent success story from their organisation, 1 key digital preservation challenge faced, and 1 notable example of upcoming work. Associate Members can register one delegate for the event. Tea and coffee, lunch and croquet on the lawn* will all be provided.

*Subject to the weather of course.
