The aim of the event was to highlight the importance of standardisation and file format validation for the long-term preservation of digital cultural content, present the open source conformance checkers developed in PREFORMA and look at future challenges and opportunities.
Hosted by the National Library of Estonia, the conference included: keynote speeches by international experts in digital preservation; live demonstrations of the software; examples and good practices of memory institutions that are integrating the PREFORMA tools in their environments; and panel discussions to reflect on how to sustain and further develop the results of the project.
The event was intended for anyone dealing with digital preservation of images, documents and audiovisual files. It was a great opportunity to ask questions of, and exchange ideas with, international experts, fellow archivists and Open Source developers about file format issues and challenges we are facing today.
