Digital Preservation 2016 is the major meeting and conference of the National Digital Stewardship Alliance—open to NDSA members and non-members alike—focusing on digital stewardship and preservation, data curation, and related issues. This year, it will be held at the historic Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 9-10 November 2016, in conjunction with the 2016 Digital Library Federation Forum (7-9 November).

Digital Preservation 2016 (#digipres16) will help to chart future directions for the NDSA, and is expected to be a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field.

A CFP will be issued by mid April. Look here and at the NDSA’s website for more details soon!
