Call for Contributions

The iPres 2022 Call for Contributions is now closed. You can still participate in the iPres 2022 Ad Hoc program by submitting a proposal before 22 July.

This is the full Call for Contributions for the 18th International Conference on Digital Preservation, iPres 2022. iPres 2022 will offer an in-person and online program,  and contributions are welcome whether or not contributors expect to be present on site.  

The theme for iPres 2022 –  Data for all, for good, for ever: Let Digits Flourish – invites reflection and debate on how digital preservation can support flourishing communities, ecologies and economies and ideas.

In keeping with the theme, we will embrace creative proposals that demonstrate how research and theory directly impact and influence practice at all levels. iPres brings together a wide range of practitioners, researchers, educators, providers, students, and others to share lessons learned from engaging in digital preservation, including recent practice, research, developments, and innovations.

More information

All submissions and presentations should be in English. Instructions for each peer-reviewed contribution type (papers, panels, posters, workshops, tutorials, hack-a-thons and the Digital Preservation Bake-Off Challenge) are to be found in the ‘How to contribute section’. Please note that when your contribution is accepted, you are required to attend the conference in person or online: registration is mandatory.
