iPRES brings together scientists, students, researchers, archivists, librarians, providers, and other experts to share recent developments and innovative projects in a wide variety of topics in digital preservation from strategy to implementation, and from international and local initiatives. Year on year the debate and research profiled at iPRES have moved digital preservation from a technology driven niche specialism of experts to a global challenge with the community to match.

iPRES 2019 is hosted by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network, a collaborative effort of a group of leading heritage institutes, helping to address the challenge of reliable access to digital resources. The ultimate goal is to develop a network of common facilities, services and knowledge base to improve the visibility, usability, and sustainability of the rich digital collections of Dutch heritage institutes. iPRES and the Dutch Digital Heritage Network are all about preserving our digital heritage for the future.

Amsterdam and the Eye Film Museum welcome the international digital preservation community to the historical grounds of a remarkable city where vessels once set sail to explore new lands. The Eye Film Museum is directly opposite Amsterdam Central Station. iPRES 2019 will be held here from 16 - 20 September, 2019.

The Conference Theme is Eye on the Horizon, aiming to broaden the voices and approaches participating in the conference, reflecting the venue and looking forward to the future.

Collaboration: a Necessity, an Opportunity or a Luxury?
