…to send a delegates to the DPC Members Networking Event ‘Connecting the Bits’, at Gray’s Court Hotel, York on Tuesday 30th June 2015, 1000 - 1630

We will be holding 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 work stream.

  • 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 1 delegate for the event.

Connecting the Bits is likely to be most useful for middle managers and practitioners who are engaged in digital preservation activities at your organisation. Delegates can be drawn from any department, project, partnership or constituent of the institution so long as they are able to contribute to and benefit from an open discussion on digital preservation and cognate issues.  Delegates will be expected to participate in a range of activities which introduce their own current and future work, which review the work of others and which help inform the work of the Coalition in the coming year.

The event will be help under ‘Chatham House Rules’, therefore allowing members to share genuine challenges and present emerging tools and processes without them being reported outside. An outline programme and details of logistics may be found on the events page of the DPC website.

Allocated places for full and associate members will be guaranteed for 1 month from registration opening, and after that time any spare places may be taken up by any member organisation upon request.
