Acting on Change: New Approaches and Future Practices in LTDP

Wellcome Collection Conference Centre, 183 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BE United Kingdom

This international meeting and conference is organised by the PERICLES Consortium in association with the Digital Preservation Coalition and will take place on two consecutive days, 30 November and 1 December 2016, with a range of panel discussions and workshops addressing the main topics and themes of the conference.

The conference will consider the importance of understanding digital objects in relation to their associated dependencies and context for preservation. During the conference we will look at how modelling might help us to understand the digital object and associated dependencies within its environment, and how this could support decision-making to lessen or countermand the impacts of change. Risk analysis and the use of models will also be explored, as tools that can support practitioners in anticipating the consequences of decisions and policies on digital preservation.

On the evening of 30 November the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) will proudly host the ceremony for the prestigious Digital Preservation Awards 2016. This two-day event will be followed by a third day (2 December) featuring a Technology Transfer workshop dedicated to IT solution providers and software developers.
