[InetBib] PASIG 2016 - March 9-11 - Prague

*** Apologies for cross-posting ***

Registration is open for the next PASIG event, March 9-11, at the Czech 
National Library of Technology in Prague. Note that the attendee cost is 200€ 
until the end of January and 250€ February 1 on. To view the agenda and 
register, go to http://pasig.schk.sk/wordpress/registration. A list of local 
hotels is available on the website.

This is a great opportunity for organizations setting up preservation 
repositories to collaborate and work directly with leaders in the field. The 
PASIG is focused on 1) addressing practical preservation questions, 2) hearing 
about best practices and new technologies from global experts, 3) investigating 
the convergence of on-premise architectures and the Cloud, 4) how to set up, 
initiate, and audit the metrics of a preservation project, 5) key global 
project updates, and 6) solution provider and end customer collaboration. PASIG 
is a highly collaborative and interactive forum and generally attracts a large 
contingent of new participants.
