Dear all,

Come help us celebrate the first 15 Years of iPRES, the premier
international conference on digital preservation! The theme for iPRES
2018: where
art and science meet: the art in science and the science in art - aims to
broaden the voices and approaches participating in the conference. iPRES
brings together a broad array of practitioners, researchers, educators,
providers, students, and others  to share lessons learned from engaging in
digital preservation, including recent research, developments, and
innovations. MIT Libraries and Harvard Library are co-hosting the
conference is in Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts on September 24-27,

The iPRES 2018 Organizing Team seeks contributions that tell stories about
bridging knowledge gaps in teams, implementing technologies, and overcoming
barriers towards proper digital stewarding of digital items, assets, works
and collections. Be creative. Be inspiring. Be inclusive. In keeping with
the theme, we will embrace creative proposals that demonstrate how research
and theory directly impact and influence practice at all levels.
