The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group has announced the date and location for its next meeting. I’ve been to a number of these over the years, and they are always very valuable.
The announcement is below.
Save the Date – PASIG Madrid, May 19-21, 2020
Please save the date for the next Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG) meeting in Madrid, May 19-21, 2020. The Biblioteca Digital Memoria de Madrid, Centro Cultural Conde Duque is the event host. The PASIG Steering Committee is pleased to connect with colleagues in Conde Duque, which is the most important cultural center in Madrid and home to some of the city’s main libraries and archives. Like last year, this PASIG will offer bi-lingual translation services in English and Spanish.
The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG) is dedicated to advancing the practice of digital preservation and archiving. It brings together practitioners, industry experts and researchers to share experience on how to put preservation and archiving into practice.
The website is at http://www.pasig2020memoriademadrid.es. Agenda drafts, sponsorship information, registration, and travel and hotel options in the coming months. The Program Committee is in its initial planning phase, but if you have a topic you want to be considered or would like to inquire about sponsorship email Courtney Mumma (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the Program Committee Chairs, Gilberto Pedreira Campillo (email@example.com) and Carlos Villarrubia Rodríguez (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Program Committee for Madrid and the PASIG Steering Committee are working closely together on this event. We would like to thank the members of both for all their effort and commitment!
