PLANETS, DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE), and CASPAR are pleased to announce that they will be delivering a joint one-day workshop to introduce the aims of their specific digital preservation projects and to discuss their overall relevance within the context of the European Commission Information Science and Technologies Framework Programme 6. This event is being held in conjunction with the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) and will be held at the Hilton Glasgow Hotel on November 23rd, 2006 immediately following the 2nd Annual DCC Conference.

Benefits of Attendance

This workshop will introduce participants to a range of newly-funded EC research including CASPAR, PLANETS, and DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE). Each project will present an overview of their aims and objectives as well as providing more detailed information on the specific tools and resources that each project will produce. Collaboration is a key objective for each of these projects and this meeting will provide a forum for networking and bridge-building between these and other international initiatives. In addition to providing detailed FP6 Project information, this meeting will host two round-table discussions to debate key curation and preservation themes.
