Alliance for Permanent Access 2011 Conference - 0 views

    This year's APA conference addresses the theme "Putting the infrastructure in place for digital preservation" and brings together leaders in the field from Europe and around the world, from academic, large scientific research, industrial and commercial stakeholders.

    Topics will include:
    * the challenges which major information holders and solution providers are addressing
    * the latest news on developing a coherent view of what works in digital preservation and how the research efforts and developments fit together
    * what infrastructure is being put in place to help you
    * how to check whether you or those you fund are doing an adequate job in preserving information - and how to improve
    * how to build the business case for preservation
    * how preservation fits into the commercial world, including privacy and security
    * success stories from which we can learn
    The keynote speaker will be EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes, Vice-President for the Digital Agenda; we also have speakers from the Centre of Excellence for Digital Preservation in India, the US National Archives (NARA) and Library of Congress. A senior representative of the British Government will speak on the second day. Looking at the role of the commercial sector in digital preservation and re-use, Microsoft, Google, Oracle and IBM will be taking part in a discussion panel on the High Level Expert Group's report 'Riding the Wave'.

    The purpose of the conference is to inform our members and the wider international communities about progress in the area of digital preservation and related infrastructure from many sources, academic as well as industrial and commercial. We aim to get feedback about needs, expectations and experiences.

    Traditional memory institutions and at least some of the scientific community have been aware for some time about the importance of digital preservation and it is very clear that commerce, industry, the arts, banking and investment in

Digital Preservation Summit 2011 - 1 views

    Experts exchange their practical knowledge and experiences on digital preservation.

    Day 1 - 19.10.2011

    The necessary "preparations" and fundamental decisions are the most underestimated challenges of digital preservation. But especially those tasks are bumps in the road which, if they aren't addressed early on, will remain constant challenges through the process of digital preservation.

    For those reasons the first block of the conference is dedicated to different aspects of necessary preparations and fundamental decisions. Experiences made in daily work of libraries and archives are presented and ways of dealing with challenges are communicated to the attendees.

    The following questions should be answered in this block:

    * How can a meaningful contextual and technical selection of holdings for digital preservation be made?
    * Which collections and digital objects should be dealt with first?
    * What expectations do users have in digital preservation? What do those expectations mean for the digital preservation process?
    * Should objects be normalized before ingest / when entering the collection? If so, how? What are recommended formats?
    * What gaps exist between existing digital preservation systems and institutional requirements?
    * What risks exist for different types of data and material?
    * What does the implementation of digital preservation mean for an institution? Which steps need to be considered? What are the challenges?
    * Which aspects of digital preservation are unanswered as of today / what are the main areas of further development, research and action?

    Day 2 - 20.10.2011

    Ingest describes the entire process of information transfer into the digital archive. The focus of this presentation block will be practitioner reports about experiences made in the development and implementation of ingest workflows for differe

International UDC Seminar 2011 - 1 views

    Classification & Ontology is the third biennial conference in a series of UDC Seminars organized by the UDC Consortium and hosted by The National Library of the Netherlands. Ontology-like representations of classifications are recognized as potentially important facilitators in creating a web of linked data (the Semantic Web).The objective of this conference is to promote collaboration and exchange of expertise between different fields dealing with knowledge classifications: bibliographic, web and AI.

Data infrastructurEs for Supporting Information Retrieval Evaluation - DESIRE 2011 Work... - 0 views

    The Information Retrieval area has a strong and long tradition dating back to the 1960s in producing and processing scientific data resulting from the experimental evaluation of search algorithms and search systems. This attitude towards evaluation has led to fast and continuous progress in the evolution of information retrieval systems and search engines.

    However, in order to make these data test collections understandable and usable they must be endowed with some auxiliary information, i.e., provenance, quality, context, etc. Therefore, there is a need for metadata models able to describe the main characteristics of evaluation data. In addition, in order to make distributed data collections accessible, sharable, and interoperable, there is a need for advanced data infrastructures.

    In contrast, the information retrieval area has barely explored and exploited the possibilities for managing, storing, and effectively accessing the scientific data produced during the evaluation studies by making use of the methods typical of the database and knowledge management areas.
    Over the years, the information retrieval area has produced a vast set of large test collections which have become the main benchmark tools of the area and ensure reproducible and comparable experiments. However, these same collections have not been organised into coherent and integrated infrastructures which make them accessible, searchable, citable, exploitable, and re-usable to all possibly interested researchers, developers, and user communities.

    It is thus time for these three communities - information retrieval, databases, and knowledge management - to join efforts, meet, and cooperate to address the problem of envisaging and designing useful infrastructures able to coherently manage pertinent data collections and sources of information, and so take concrete steps towards developing them.
    Indeed, the information retrieval experts need to recognise this need, while the database and knowledge

IEEE CLOUD 2011 - 1 views

    "Change we are leading" is the theme of CLOUD 2011. Cloud Computing has become a scalable services consumption and delivery platform in the field of Services Computing. The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualizations of hardware and software. The goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners, and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud offerings such as infrastructure cloud (e.g. hardware, IT infrastructure management), software cloud (e.g. SaaS focusing on middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application cloud (e.g. Application as a Service, UML modeling tools as a service, social network as a service), and business cloud (e.g. business process as a service).

7th International Digital Curation Conference - 0 views

    Digital curation manages, maintains, preserves, and adds value to digital information throughout its lifecycle, reducing threats to long-term value, mitigating the risk of digital obsolescence and enhancing usefulness for research and scholarship. IDCC brings together those who create information, those who curate and manage it, those who use it and those who research and teach about curation processes.
