The eArchiving Initiative and DLM Forum join forces to organise a face-to-face public event, about electronic archiving in the digital society. The Triennial DLM Forum Conference will pave the way for the full day dedicated to the eArchiving Initiative.

The eArchiving Initiative Summit on Wednesday 25 October, will cover the following topics:

  • eArchiving experiences.
  • eArchiving and the eIDAS regulation Electronic Archiving Trusted Services.
  • eArchiving and Interoperability.
  • eArchiving Future Directions, including presentations and discussions about the eArchiving Conformity Seal, the Academic Curriculum, new approaches to archiving by design in the eArchiving reference architecture, or distributed digital preservation.

This free event is open for the general public to attend, virtual attendance will also be available.

The Triennial DLM Forum Conference theme is: Keeping and Connecting Data in the Digital Society. This two-day conference will bring together stakeholders, data producers, archives, data repositories, solution providers and their users.  The call for contributions is now open for the following topics:

  • Harvesting Social Media Content: This topic would include both technological developments for harvesting this content, and the “why” aspect of harvesting social media.
  • AI, Archival Salvation or doom?: AI is everywhere and GPT can act in a very human way. Midjourney generates photorealistic visualisation that is difficult to distinguish from professional photography shoots. This topic would include the utilisation of AI and its benefits to archives.
  • Archival technologies: Preservation technologies, storage, etc.
  • Digital Humanities: The softer side of archives.
  • Archival Content in use (research, DH, business cases, etc): Actual case presentation, showing where archived data has been successfully utilised.
  • Digitisation processes: How archives are being digitised, including a relation to time machine and mass digitisation.

We would like the meeting to be as interactive, diverse and inclusive as possible, so different types of contributions are welcome.
