Broad scope - The iPRES series embraces a variety of topics in digital preservation - from strategy to implementation, and from international and regional initiatives to small organisations.
Within this broad topic area, each conference defines a slightly different focus.
Inclusive dialogue - A key element of iPRES conferences is their inclusiveness. Experts from all parts of the world contribute to the organisation, and the programme aims to embrace
Cooperative goals - Alongside a carefully designed official programme, participants have many opportunities for discussion with international colleagues. The iPRES series aims to
foster international interaction and collaboration.
The iPRES series
Each iPRES conference has a different focus and convenes different participants. The local host shapes and organises the event with the assistance of a group of international experts, and in light of experiences from previous iPRES conferences.
The proceedings of all iPRES conferences can be found in the Phaidra Repository.

An invitation of the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and eIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) in 2003 provided the initial impetus
for the iPRES series. Eight European experts in digital preservation contributed to the first iPRES conference in Beijing, July 2004. After the completion of a successful conference in Beijing, the German Research Council (DFG) called for a follow-up
event. The second iPRES conference, held in Göttingen in October 2005, was organised together with the German digital preservation network, nestor and with
funding by the DFG and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). After conferences in Asia and Europe, iPRES
continued in 2006 at Cornell, in North America.
