About iPRES 2021

The International Conference on Digital Preservation (iPRES) 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.

With the support of the whole community, this year’s 17th International Conference on Digital Preservation (iPRES2021) will be held at the National Science Library, on October 19-22, 2021, in Beijing, China, and will be organized in a hybrid mode (on-site and online). iPRES2021 will be co-hosted by the National Science and Technology Library (NSTL) and the National Science Library of Chinese Academy of Sciences (NSL). The main theme of the conference is ‘Empowering Digital Preservation for the Enriched Digital Ecosystem’, and a Draft Programme is available here.

For more information, please visit the iPRES 2021 Conference website at http://ipres2021.ac.cn/.
