WORKSHOP INVITATION: The Future of the Past of the Web, British Library Conf. Centre, London

Wed, 2011-08-10 10:17 -- carol

London, UK The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), The British Library and the Digital Preservation Coalition invite you to attend their 3rd joint web archiving workshop on October 7, 2011, at the British Library Conference Centre. The previous 2 workshops were held in 2006 and 2009.

The workshop has a programme of invited talks and discussion panels by UK and international speakers, featuring use cases of web archives and exciting new developments. Web archives are no longer just individual web pages for reference but also aggregated datasets with inherent properties which can be exploited for many new possibilities. Access to archived web data in bulk, and machine-to-machine interaction are definitely the new trends!
