Future Perfect 2012: digital preservation by Design 

26 - 27 March 2012 , All day
Te Papa
Wellington  , Wellington 

Presented by Archives New Zealand, the Future Perfect 2012 conference seeks to stimulate discussion about how, when and why influencing the design of systems can support digital preservation and ultimately ensure that today's information is available tomorrow.

Successful preservation of digital content relies on the integration of preservation requirements into the design of systems. Digital preservation experience and research has progressed and the size and diversity of digital content has grown, and we must actively influence the development of a wide variety of tools and workflows across the information life cycle to ensure that preservation requirements are met.

Future Perfect 2012 will connect across disciplines and domains and will be of value and interest to information technologists, records and information managers, enterprise content architects, developers, academics, librarians and archivists.

This conference is aimed at those with an interest in digital preservation, digital continuity, open standards and open data (particularly government data), metadata, public sector information, technology management and archiving. The call for papers is now closed, the programme and registration will be available in October 2011.
