Date: 7 April 2016
Venue: National Library, Stockholm (Sweden)
The PREFORMA Open Source Workshop was intended for anyone interested in digital preservation and cultural heritage: developers who want to contribute code to the PREFORMA tools; memory institutions or other cultural heritage organisations involved in (or planning) digital preservation initiatives; standardisation bodies maintaining the technical specifications of preservation file formats; any other person interested in cooperating with us in defining open digital preservation standards.
It featured keynote presentations by representatives from the PREFORMA project and the open source community, live demonstrations of the three conformance checkers for electronic documents, images and AV files by the suppliers working in the project and an informal networking event where all the attendees can share experiences, meet the PREFORMA developers and learn about the tools.
Presentations and videos of the workshop are available on the event website at http://opensourceworkshop.preforma-project.eu.
