Promoter SRL at DiPP2015. Veliko Tarnovo (BG), 28-30 September 2015

The-key-to-digital-preservation by-Digitalbevaring.dk -470x258The Fifth International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage (DiPP2015) is being held at the Regional Museum of History and P.R. Slaveykov Regional Public Library in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria, on 28-30 September 2015. As invited speaker, Antonella Fresa from Promoter SRL will deliver a talk under the title "DCH-RP and PREFORMA: two case studies on the digital preservation of cultural heritage", focussed on the work carried out by two projects: DCH-RP (Digital Cultural Heritage Roadmap for Preservation, recently concluded) and PREFORMA (PREservation FORMAts for culture information/e-archives).

 

DCH-RP, mostly centred on planning and organisational aspects, defined a roadmap for implementation of a federated infrastructure for digital preservation of DCH and more in general devoted itself to support the realisation of an open science in the arts and humanities. PREFORMA is devoted instead to a technological challenge: the implementation of an open source conformance checker that verifies whether the file to be ingested in digital archives has been produced according to the specifications of a standard file format and ensures this process is under the direct control of memory institutions.


DiPP 2015 aims to present innovative results, research projects and applications in the field of digitisation, documentation, archiving, representation and preservation of global and national tangible and intangible cultural and scientific heritage. Its main objectives are to provide open access to digitised cultural heritage (CH) and to set up sustainable policies for the CH's continuous digital preservation and conservation. The priority area is the digital presentation and preservation of cultural and historical objects under conditions of risk, including those from the Veliko Tarnovo region.
The forum will demonstrate innovative technologies and prototypes, including digital repositories, digital archives, virtual museums and digital libraries, which result from established practices and achievements in the field. Representatives of public and specialised libraries, museums, galleries, archives, centres, both national and foreign research institutions and universities are invited to participate and exchange experiences, ideas, knowledge and best practices in the field.
