Save the Date: CEF eArchiving Building Block Geopreservation Conference 6-7 May 2019

The European Commission Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) eArchiving Building Block (including the E-ARK4ALL Consortium), the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia, and the company Geoarh are pleased to invite you to the eArchiving Geopreservation Conference in Ljubljana on the 6th and 7th of May, 2019.

TheArchiving Geopreservation conference is going to be an exciting two-day event that will bring together producers of geospatial information, archives, data repositories and solution providers.

We are offering the attendees two slots (Session 2 on 6th of May and Session 6 on 7th of May) in a form of lightning talks: short 5-10 minutes speaks/presentations during which speakers can present their views, experiences, issues, solutions and best practices:

Session 2 topics: mainly focused on the experiences of data producers, data owners, archives, data users and their issues related to use and reuse of geospatial data, including data sets that require intervention (e.g. changing coordination system and/or formats, lack of some other information needed for proper interpretation/rendering geodata).

Sessions 6 topics: mainly focused on the experiences of solution and service providers and others with experiences on geodata preservation (e.g. working solutions for geodata preservation activities, geodata rendering tools, tools for transformation of formats/coordination systems). 

You can register for lightening talks via the registration form and the organising committee will contact you and provide further details.

In today’s digital world, an increasing amount of born digital information also includes a spatial component. The environment in which such information is created and managed, however, is not made for long- term preservation. More than decades of experience with digital spatial data management shows us that preservation of data and especially maintaining data usability over time has often been overlooked. The purpose of the conference is to point out the key factors that affect the handling of geospatial data, its preservation and its further usability. It aims to connect different geospatial community stakeholders (data creators, regulators, solution and service providers, archives, academia) from Europe and around the world, offering an opportunity for them to share their experience and  solutions,  face their common challenges and issues, and learn from each other.

The conference 

Date: 6-7 May 2019 

Venue:  Domus Medica Conference centre (Dunajska cesta 162, Ljubljana, Slovenia).
